A few years ago at the Seattle Special Olympics nine contestants all physically and mentally impaired assembled at the starting line for the 100 metre dash.

 

At the gun, they all started out, not exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race to finish and win. All that is, except one boy who stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple of times and began to cry.

 

The other 8 contestants heard the boy, slowed down and looked back. They all turned around and went back. Every one of them. One girl with Down Syndrome bent down and kissed him and said "This will make it better". All nine linked arms and walked across the finish line together. Everyone in the stadium stood and the cheering went on for several minutes.
