Letter: Get more excited about the Special Olympics
This was my second time being in the United States while the Olympics were on, as I saw London 2012 and Sochi 2014, I was very pleased to see all the media reports about them and how proud the country was with Team USA — and they should be.
Anyway, both times I was equally excited about watching the paralympics or Special Olympics, but the media weren’t covering it, and some people here had no idea that those went on at all.
All I’m saying is that it’s great how much you care about your athletes, but be proud of the Special Olympics team.
