Athletes are the Real Heroes

By Rajeswari Ranjan

It gives me great pleasure to put down my experience as being a part of this prestigious community that strives to serve and reduce the gap between people with and without intellectual disabilities. It’s been more than a year since I have been associated with Special Olympics and Project UNIFY! Special Olympics provides people with intellectual disabilities opportunities to realize their potential, develop physical fitness, experience joy and friendship. My special friends are not only filled with zeal but have a great courage in them to move on in life as each day passes by! They act as a role model for me because I believe that "not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until faced". They are the real heroes of our generation because they have the courage and potential to face everything in life with great dedication and sincerity! They have inspired me to become like them! The only disability in life is a bad attitude!
