3. The Special Olymics is Special
John Phee ,   Sydney, AUSTRALIA   (07.08.11)
The Special Olympics is the one place that the athletes have hurdles far higher to jump over than the rest of us. It is the one place there being Muslim, Jew, Christian Ba'hi, Buddist or whatever is totally irrelevant. They come as humans first, last & only.To all the athletes that won, lost & competed, congratulations. To their families my G-D give you the strength & courage to continue. To the countries of the world, keep politics out. We all need something that is innocent to remind us that their is some good.
