Black Belt

Just want to make sure you have your quoto of feel good stories today.

This one is out of a Miami, reported by a local television station. What is noteworthy about this to me is not just that Andrew accomplished something difficult but rather that someone, his instructor namely, allowed him to do so by giving him the time and space he needed. He was patient. People with Down syndrome typically need more time to assimilate information and make the necessary connections to accomplish the things they are interested in. In our society where we tend to expect everyone to learn the same way that can be tough. I hope we can surround Wil with people, like Andrew's instructor, that will provide understanding, patience and opportunity.
