“When we fail, people’s lives are lost.”

Shriver Press Conf. 1 1

That’s a quote from Tim Shriver at a press conference at the games in Athens.  It was about 4 days into the games, he was clearly tired and a little emotional.  But his passion about the Special Olympics, and for people with special needs really comes through, and that quote has stayed with me for 2 months.

Do yourself a favor and take two minutes and 45 seconds to listen.
