All, that is, except one little boy who stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple of times, and began to cry. The other eight heard the boy cry. They slowed down and looked back. Then they all turned around and went back . . . every one of them!
One girl with Down's Syndrome bent down and kissed him, and said, "This will make it better." Then all nine linked arms and walked together to the finish line.
What Really Matters!
Because deep down we know this one thing: What matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What matters in this life is helping others to win, even if it means slowing down and changing our course.
Respect Life! Because every child is created in God's image and to know, love and serve Him. We can do this when we love and serve each other.
God Bless us all+
