I awoke to the horrible headline of “Bus Carrying Special Olympians Flips, Injuring 8.” For many of these Special Olympians, simply riding on a strange bus is challenging enough and so I can’t imagine the panic some of them may have experienced. My heart goes out to those involved as well as their caretakers and families.
I am one of those lucky people who is blessed with a little angel in my life. My niece Victoria is very special person with very special needs. This is why I support the Special Olympics. I hope you, too, will discover a way to help these unique individuals, ranging from child to adult. If you are not directly related to somebody with special needs, I bet you at least know somebody who is. Keeping that in mind, I am posting three very worthwhile golf tournaments that will benefit Special Olympics here in Central Florida.
