Paralympic athletes inspire
Letters to the Editor, August 30, 2012
Thanks to the folks at RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall, my family and I recently had the pleasure of being a sponsor family for one of the Paralympic athletes while they were in this area before going to London. I hate to say I never thought about the Paralympic Games until that time.
The young man we sponsored was inspiring to everyone who met him, as were all the athletes. They have taken what was given to them and done amazing things with it. It sounds corny but, where I saw their disability before, I now see their abilities. They are amazing athletes.
If you get a chance, watch the Paralympic Games. My family and I will, and will be cheering for our athlete and all of Team USA.
