Paralympic sadness

Overheard in the Olympic park yesterday...

A Mother comforts her distraught young daughter. " Don't be sad, it was only an inflatable Mandeville ".

And, at the end of the day, as I was leaving...

A family of four, the youngest son sobbing into his Union Jack, bawled out, " but we'll never have this again. Ever ! "

I know how they both feel.
