"Let me win. And If I can't win, let me be brave in the attempt." — Special Olympics Oath
Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics, passed away this morning after a series of short strokes. Shriver founded the Special Olympics in 1968, and became one of the "earliest and most ardent supporters of the physically and intellectually disabled." She will be missed, but her legacy lives on. The next world games will be held in Athens in 2011.
