What It Takes To Take The Gold
The recent London Olympics were the most-watched U.S. television event ever. Two of the Games’ most inspiring gold medalists were 15-year-old Katie Ledecky and 16-year-old Gabby Douglas. About her stunning victory in the 800-Meter Women’s Freestyle, Katie said, “The support from my school and parish community has been wonderful.” She continued, “I didn’t get much sleep the night after my race, so I took some of that time to quietly thank God for the opportunity.”
Gabby Douglas’ reaction to her victory in the Women’s Gymnastics All-Around was equally humble. “It is everything I thought it would be; being the Olympic champion, it definitely is an amazing feeling. And I give all the glory to God. It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to Him and the blessings fall down on me,” Douglas shared.
Katie and Gabby remind us that an individual’s performance and ultimate success has much to do with the support and encouragement received from many. In many ways, this goes to the heart of EthnoGraphic Media. We are a community of artists and filmmakers that explore the critical issues of our time—gripping stories that tackle tough issues. The following EGM initiatives would not be possible without the ongoing support and encouragement of those like you. Each provides unique opportunities to join in and engage others.
