Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap

I followed the Olympics a little on Twitter, but I didn’t read any blogs about it.  I’m just not that interested.  It seems that the U.S., China, and Russia (big countries with big money for athletes) win so many medals, and smaller countries don’t.  I am from California but teach English in Turkey.  I was glad that Turkey won a few medals.

I’d rather blog about challenges that more people face in daily life.  Most of us can’t relate to professional athletes, but we know how it feels to be an abused wife or out-of-work father.
