I would like to relate a story. When our son was young, he made friends with a neighbor boy who had just had surgery on his legs. He had cerebal palsy and was confined to a wheel chair for quite some time. Our son sat and played board games with him every day...and when he was out of his wheel chair and healed up, he even taught him to ride a bike...something the doctors said would never happen. When my son joined the city baseball team, of which my husband was the coach, they took John along. My husband made a decision ... something that might be very unpopular with many people...he let the boy join the team. The rest of the team members supported this decision without hesitation. When "John" went up to bat, they cheered. He could not run, so one of the team members would run for him. The reason I am telling this story, is so that we never forget those who are handicapped ... in any way...we can learn so much from them...empathy being right at the top of the list. This child had a life time of memories he will never forget...because someone took the time to make things happen for him. I hope all of you are doing something to "make things happen" for someone you know. I remember his mom saying how difficult some of the teachers and other kids were in school for John...and she would comment that all he wanted to do was "play"... just like the other kids. We need to stop giving so much glory to the "smartie pants" kids in school...they have it made. Now don't start with the rude comments about how difficult it is to be soooooo smart. That is B.S. and you know it. What's difficult is the boy who wants to be part of the "team", part of the little circles of friends, and part of the "smart" group of kids who get all the glory. If you have a heart, you will know what I mean.
