☆  awe 畏敬の念


This month, we are looking at the topic of, “Sports is entertainment” … by this time next year, the Tokyo Olympics will have finished. I wonder how they will go?! I know that I will be in awe of all the Olympians and volunteers and spectators that take part during such a hot time of year!

Awe is a feeling of respect and amazement that you have when you are facing something wonderful (and sometimes even something frightening.) It’s a feeling of wonder, admiration, astonishment, respect, and even sometimes fear. I know that the feeling of awe at the marathon runners in Tokyo summer, might definitely include a feeling of fear and wondering whether they’ll be OK! I wonder what time the winner will finish in? Any guesses?
