Helping Others Win
A few weeks ago NIMH (National Institute of Mentally Handicapped, Hyderabad, India) had conducted a sports meet for all the Physically & mentally handicapped children at National Stadium in Hyderabad.
In one race.., Nine contestants, all physically or mentally disabled,
assembled at the starting line for the 100-yard dash. At the gun, they all started out, not exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race to the finish and win. All, that is, except one little boy who stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple of times, and began to cry.
The other eight heard the boy cry. They slowed down and looked back. Then they all turned around and went back......every one of them. One girl with Down's Syndrome bent down and kissed him and said, "This will make it better." Then all nine linked arms and walked together to the finish line.
Everyone in the stadium stood, and the cheering went on for several minutes. People who were there are still telling the story.
Because deep down we know this one thing: What matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What matters in this life is helping others win, even if it means slowing down and changing our course.

weight of the world can feel a bit heavier and I have found about that time,
someone always comes along and says "Good job, keep up the great work." It always makes me smile
and sometimes shed a tear of joy that I have such magical moments in my
