Special Olympics

Last week the bride and I attended the local county-wide Special Olympics, to see a loved one compete.

If you've never attended, it's a real treat.  Athletes and the "buddies," school officials, family members...it's chaos.

But a good chaos. Seeing the athletes work so hard, giving it all, trying their best, for a chance to succeed at a physical thing in a life where physical things often come hard.  And the looks on those faces when they cross the finish line...or when they get a ribbon pinned on their chest.

That's why I always send them money when they call.  As an athlete myself, I understand the work and the rewards, and know that these kids deserve the same.
