I think that the paralympics are a wonderful event. It's sad and unfortunate that they don't get as much publicity as they should. Perhaps the paralympic games are too close to the regular Olympics. By the time they come on, everyone has had enough Olympics and wants to go on to something else after all the excitement.
I hope lots of people show up at noon today for the ceremony at the Legislature. Those athletes have worked hard, harder perhaps than the regular athletes who don't have a disability to overcome, and they deserve lots and lots of support.
