If you are involved in Special Olympics or have been for any length of time, my guess is you probably have a t-shirt that proves it. In fact, I would bet that most of us in Special Olympics New Mexico have stacks of Games and Event t-shirts that we have collected over the years. This past weekend our Four Corners Invitational shirt was a hit, and I believe this is why.
There is an entire psychology on what our clothes say about us. It relates to establishing and maintaining a sense of who we are, where we fit in, and where we belong.
Over 1800 people left our Four Corner’s Invitational sporting a t-shirt that sent this message to those around them – “I am Special Olympics – I am New Mexico – and I am proud of it.”
