Think of other’s as havening a disability as a gift from God to show other’s they can do something special.--
Try something new at least once
I firmly believe Special Olympics is more than just a program of sports, training and competition; it's a strong statement of optimism about human life.--
If people would believe in us like Special Olympics and see what we can do, they would be amazed. My ambition in life is to turn ‘no’ into ‘yes.’ If someone says I can’t do something, I want to prove I can.
It is the Special Olympics athletes’ ability to deliver and exceed everyone’s expectations, including my own that impresses me the most.
Miley Cyrus - The Climb: Hannah Montana The Movie
The Climb by Miley Cyrus should be Special Olympics theme song. To me it means, for everything that comes your way; you will always have another challenge. You can find out your meaning for yourself.
