NY Special Olympics 2014

I recently volunteered at the 2014 NY Special Olympics, during the volleyball matches on Saturday, July 7.

The games were intense and fun to watch, and the athletes were more than impressive. I also enjoyed spending time with two of my fellow volunteer firefighters. Reflecting on the day, I think what stayed with me the most is the fact that even if you struggle in some area and are not great at something, you can excel at something else. You can be excellent. Like how these special Olympians dominated at volleyball.
