God bless the Rio Paralympics

God bless the Paralympics –2016_summer_paralympics_logo-svg
the wheelchair basketball and rugby,
road cycling and archery,
judo and goalball,
sitting volleyball, sailing, athletics,
powerlifting, table tennis,
the new-this-year
canoeing and paratriathalon.

From one hundred sixty countries
come competitors
to all these wonderful games.

God, bless sighted guides,
coaches, the re-invigorated
hosts of Rio de Janeiro,
those who watch,
those who train for next time,

and very many of your children,
whose daily lives
have elements of paralympics –
courage, endurance,
moments of joy,
which are different,
but sometimes include winning.
