    Have you ever attended a Special Olympics Event?

    Special Olympics Events are in full gear around the world. Anyone have first hand experience?

    I am not a fan of the Olympics in general.So I do not attend any Olympic events.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    By all I've seen, Special Olympics are a great thing. Sad to say though, the only Special Olympics events I've seen were on TV.

    Sadly My son who is Autistic is not functional enough to compete. Years ago a friend of mine had a sister that competed and I went it was great fun. To see how excited the competitors get is so great
