Why I Love Special Olympics

I love Special Olympics because it lets me do what I want to do and lets me spend time with my friends and it help me be on my own when I go to state games with my team and when I bring back a medal I feel proud of myself because I tried hard at what I did. My mom and dad support me at what I do and my team and friends. I hope I keep doing what I love and so do my sisters. They love me, too. Mrs Lorra Smith I thank you, you gave me the love for Special Olympics and I thank you.
