Today I read an article about someone in the States using a derogatory term for the President. This term is an insult to people who have special needs. However a Special Olympics athlete replied to the incident with a response that gave me chills – because it was so compassionate and kind – even in the face of such anger and sarcasm. He signed it as
“A friend you haven’t made yet, John Franklin Stephens”
I was so moved by this, because this is why we teach kids meditation.
