  1. I have a friend Richard who was in last year’s special Olympics so we were following it all as much as we could. The little video clip is so inspiring. Thank you for this great #WATWB Sylvia!

    Hi Sylvia – the London ParaOlympics really brought it home to me … as it was widely broadcast in 2012. I did see some of Abu Dhabi games last year … it so great for those very special people … they need encouragement, while we need inspiration … and to see what can be done – just about anything … thanks for this – and for alerting us that the Thunder Bay ones occur at the end of this month … I know we have entrants. Cheers Hilary
