Today, the world mourns the loss of Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
Over 40 years ago, she started THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS.
As a child my son, Jonathan, participated in Special Olympics and loved it.
I have hope that I can get hm back into it as an adult...
Special Olympics was a big deal to Jonathan when he was smaller. He felt like he was part of a group, that people cared about him. That's priceless. What she started here will last forever.
She has left a legacy of love. She increased awareness. She was an amazing contributor.
The oath of Special Olympics says it all:
Let me win,
but if I cannot win
let me be brave
in the attempt.
One of my favorite campaigns was this one:
In honor of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, let's do more. More love, more compassion, more awareness. That way, we all win.
