Today, my sister and I took our younger brother to the fair for his 8th birthday. He was so excited to play all the fair games and win tickets to buy a life-size stuffed bear. But because he has Down ’s Syndrome, and lacks good eye-hand coordination, he won very few tickets and couldn’t get much at all with the few tickets he earned. A group of kids nearby overheard us say it was his birthday, and that he didn’t win enough tickets. They all gave us the 870 tickets they earned that day and all of them wished him happy birthday. And he’s holding on to that stuffed bear right this second. MMT
