"INCLUSION SHARES A SMILE & A HUG!"

"EUNICE'S VISION PAVES A PATH"

A journey she started

So very long ago

Still continues today

As we hail Inclusion's growth...

And as inclusion spreads

the pain subsides 

divisions are broken 

TRUE CHAMPIONS RISE...

Knowledge is shared 

Beyond every border

No one is shunned 

Throughout the world's corners...

Voices are heard 

To the ends of the Earth 

All of us a light

All born of great worth...

Yes, we all have a choice 

To love and embrace 

To let our eyes be opened

Let the fears be erased...

Look without judgement

Touch without fear

Hear the words that are spoken

You replace every tear...

They're a gift to humanity

A blessing to you and I

The odds they overcame

The past now defied...

Inclusion holds the key

to soar and rise above

Let us all pave a path

IN UNITY AND LOVE...

AND may we carry a torch

In the light of Eunice's vision

For her spirit LIVES ON

THROUGH EVERY HEART OF "INCLUSION"

THANK YOU SPECIAL OLYMPICS FOR CHANGING HEARTS & LIVES!

About Me:

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE to become a part of Special Olympics in some small or even large way! IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!! I have been a volunteer for Special Olympics for 8 yrs now. This year I was humbled beyond words to receive the 2017 Sports Volunteer of the Year award. It left me speechless! Which is not a natural thing for me. Ask my peers, LOL. I was introduced to SO by a very special woman named Ann who I call "Mom" & very extraordinary young athlete named "Anthony" who has also become my son. And over the years Special Olympics has become a home to me! There is no other place on earth I would rather be! I just wanted to share this message because Special Olympics does so much more than they think! I don't have a intellectual disability yet a physical one where others have always made me feel I was less than and a burden on society because I do not look like I have challenges.  It broke my heart! Yet, through it all I have always striven to live beyond my circumstances.
