Why the ignorance? Is it because they are different?

I think about this everyday, why the hate?

We get it, they don’t have the “required” traits.

But to me, they are unique, special, and spectacular.

Just because they have a label, doesn’t mean they aren’t able.

But we still judge.

Even with a thoreau lesson, people still don’t budge.

Different not less, they are much more than blessed.

Let’s start to realize the good and forget the rest.

Just because we label them as special needs, doesn’t mean they can’t succeed.

The amount of things they make possible, even though the "experts" state that it's impossible truly amazes me.

We can all learn, remove the blinders and open your mind.

It's amazing what you will see.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
