Well, I'm almost 45 and I got to hold the torch today! One of the torchbearers was a student who recently left our elementary school for high school, but she came back today in her olympic track suit that she wore yesterday while running, with the torch in it's special case, to give a talk at a special assembly. I was in the office when she came in so I got to hold it.Originally Posted by Lil Bit;3810425;
One of my girl's classmates, her dad also got to run with the torch and so she came to their school today with it, and they also got to hold it. I guess you get to keep it afterwards which is a pretty amazing souvenir.
