This year’s theme “State Summer Games Where The Force Is With You” was not only wildly popular and fun – it was true.
I would venture to guess that almost everyone attending the Games had enough
knowledge to not only understand but experience the parallel between the Force of Star Wars and the Force of Special Olympics.
The Force is what gives power. It surrounds us and penetrates us and binds us together. When using the Force – one has the power to influence others and even see the future. The Force is used for persuasion, wisdom, and the performance of great physical feats.
The Force resides within and when awakened – can change our hearts and minds. Can I just say – it did.
With the closing of our Games, and the closing of my thoughts today – May The Force Be With You.
