Lopez Lomong

Can you imagine being forcefully taken away from your family as a young child? Can you imagine spending nine years of your life in miserable conditions eating only one meal a day? Can you imagine making an attempt to escape from such a terrible life, only to be caught and returned to your prison? Can you imagine someone who went through such a hard childhood to be making an attempt at the Olympics in the 1500m.?

Lopez Lomong's story is inspirational. To have the strength and drive to do what he has done is amazing. I, for one, will be cheering for this guy over the weekend to make the team!
