Silver Medal

With the close of the Olympics, the athletes will return home with their medals and their memories. The moments have passed, the memories will always be there, but what do those medals tell us?
As the final hockey match between the United States and Canada was being played, I was listening to NPR which was talking about a study being done about Olympic medalists! According to the study the gold medalists felt great, of course! Next comes an interesting part: The bronze medalists felt more happy and content than the sliver medalists. Bronze medalists are happy to have placed and be given a medal. Sliver medalists are glad to receive a medal but their reception is different. It's like being recognized as "almost the best, but not quite! Something to think about!
