Wednesday child

Wednesday child

There are a lot of smile in the stands, parent’s grandparents and friends. On the field there are the skills and tremendous effort of those that will try hard to win the gold, but I tell you they have already won. The sound of the crowd, the cheers of fellow athletes, the smiles win over of a life time of pain, these are the young men and women of the Special Olympics. Each year I have gone and cheered on the young people and I am inspired by their grit.

Some year back I met a young man who was very accomplished a many things he had won international gold in bike racing, the same in steeple chase, a highly accomplish computer programmer.  He drives a van, and rides a horse; you may be saying that good so what this is this all about. Well he has ms, multiple sclerosis, and been a wheelchair all his life.

Here are a couple of videos. Note these people all are handicap.





 A moment I remember  working in theses program was from a 12 year old girl who said "Mommy I can" the first word said in her life. I held the crying mother for an hour, her daughter has MS and Autism. and was in a wheelchair or carried from birth, after a year she walked.. 

Thank you for coming by and god bless

Great share, Roy.
We have had the opportunity to have Mr. Shriver come visit us and provide encouragement for both donations and time.
It is amazing how hard they work- and how large their smiles upon completion...
