    Hi Noel, Thanks for the kind words on my poem. I just shared several of your poems with a friend of mine who has CP. She said she liked this the best. My friend did participate in the Special Olympics many yuears ago, and she NEVER considered herself as being disabled. She is a firm believer on that if you are given lemons in life, make lemonade. I really enjoyed your poetry. Susan

    People with disabilities often don't see themselves as disadvantaged, but we all rejoice when they achieve success. That's why the Special Olympics are so important. They provide a venue for people with disabilities to enjoy the spotlight. Excellent senryu, Noel! Love, Carolyn
