Felicitations Joannie Rochette!

What a beautiful performance that was last night!  Watching via a live feed on ctvolympics.ca, I soon found myself enthralled in her poise, grace, and the raw emotion of the evening. All of Canada seemed to have been pulling for young Joannie.  Hailing from the small island, Ile Dupas, this young girl proved even in the smallest of communities can come the truest of champions. Especially in light of tragedy.

Her courage, and inner strength to continue with the competition, after the sudden death of her mother is a true testament in itself. The breathtakingly beautiful skating, both in the long and short programs, was captivating. Joannie, you now hold a bronze medal in your hands. To Canada, you are a true gold star. You make Canada proud.
