This is so beautiful. And so true.
And they call some of these people "retarded"...
A few years ago, at the Seattle Special Olympics,
nine contestants, all physically or mentally
disabled,assembled at the starting line for the
100-yard dash. At the gun, they all started out, not
exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race
to the finish and win. All, that is, except one little
boy who stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple
of times, and began to cry. The other eight heard the
boy cry. They slowed down and looked back. Then they
all turned around and went back......every one of
them. One girl with Downs Syndrome bent down and
kissed him and said, "This will make it better." Then
all nine linked arms and walked together to the finish
line. Everyone in the stadium stood, and the cheering
went on for several minutes. People who were there are
still telling the story. Why? Because deep down we
know this one thing: What matters in this life is more
than winning for ourselves. What matters in this life
is helping others win, even if it means slowing down
and changing our course. If you pass this on, we may
be able to change our hearts as well as someone
elses............... "A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle."
One of my favorites is, "Does my candle shine brighter
if I blow someone elses out?"
Keep pouring in and keep this thread alive
