Two Things That Unite Us: The Olympics & Apartment Living

“In the name of all the competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams.” – The Olympic Oath

We Come Together for the Summer Games

With these words, the world comes together for 16 glorious days. For a few weeks, starting August 5, the world forgets about the things that separate us. There ceases to be color, race or ethnicity. The political beliefs that divide us are pushed aside in favor of kicks, passes, punts, and pole vaults. Time pauses and we are brought together in the spirit of competition as our cultures unite around one occasion…the Olympics. As one world, we watch and cheer for our athletes and our champions. Together, we take a moment – not to see the things that make us different, but to experience the things that make us the same.

We Come Together in Our Communities

As the world unites to watch the athletes and spectacles of the Rio Olympic Games, there is yet another item that bonds us together: apartments. All across the world, people come together in the communities that are created through apartment living. It is here where we express the greatest of principles that make us human. We have a natural desire for togetherness and, because of this, we are drawn to live amongst each other.

Even the Olympic athletes are brought together by apartment living. In the days before they compete, they find rest, focus, and community in the apartments of the Olympic Village. And after they have competed, whether they snagged a gold medal or not, they return to their Olympic Village apartment to join together in the community of athletes. Each athlete is unique and each is a member of a united community. The model they exemplify is one that each of us should strive for.
