X' MARKS TARGET OF HIS CONCERN

Harris Hollin and his wife Sande knew something was not right with their 18-month-old grandson, Matthew...Click here for more...

A SPECIAL MOMENT

I wanted to share a special moment with you. Yesterday, Sande and I went to the Bala Cynwyd Middle School in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania to see the promotion ceremony from 8th grade to high school. There were about 250 graduates and about 1000 on-lookers. As they are reading special "Honors", they call Matthew up to receive the Howard I. Kline Award

"Presented annually to the eight grade pupil who,in the opinion of the faculty, has to the best of his/her ability, demonstrated outstanding courage and has expressed an exemplary attitude in overcoming difficulties while attending our school."

Both Sande and I cried. Many people at school know Matthew because of the Gold Medals he earned in the Special Olympics events and the applause was very loud. He was so pleased going up to receive the award. I wanted to share this special moment with you. It is yet another example of the fact that we all have something to "give" despite what our limitations might be.

All the best,
Harris
