Unification. That is a beautiful, strong word. Where does it exist in it’s entirety? The Special Olympics.
And now, a proposal to impose on families the duty of even more fundraising efforts than we already do to keep this program thriving. And what of the families that are already taxed to the max? Everyone misses out. You see, Special Olympics is not just for our kids with special needs. It unifies, strengthens and empowers all involved. Special Olympics reminds us that we are truly special for who we already are. It doesn’t matter what color you are, how many choromosomes you have, if you speak or you sign or both. It doesn’t matter because deep down we all matter greatly. True leadership is standing for what matters for the greater good. Let’s all stand for the greater good. Let’s stand for the Special Olympics.
