Ahhwwwe, this is how our Special Olympics Story begins! Well ... in all honesty it began years before when Barbara made consistent “all in” efforts to develop the ability and invitation for United By Music North America to participate in Special Olympics. Barbara’s successful efforts landed a return phone call from Joe Hampson who believes in her vision and mission for UBMNA & SO.

DAY 1 Walked out my door to meet SeoYon and there was Simen & Tage in their doorway, walked to breakfast and saw Joris & Arthur just across the pathway! How wonderfully random with all these countries represented to find our UBM FAMILY within minutes this morning! We had a fabulously fun breakfast on this beautiful morning together! After we had some free time, Jj Thames and I met up with SeoYon, got registered at Special Music & Arts Festival, a 스페셜올림픽코리아 Special Olympics Korea event and had lunch. Everyone sends huggs Barbara!

While I was voting yesterday an older guy in the booth next to me kept asking me if I was a Republican. I told him “You can’t ask me that” His English was pretty broken. He apparently needed help.
