Special Olympics New Mexico’s 2017 State Summer Games theme is “Everything Is Awesome.” It is the title of the song that was written for The Lego Movie. I haven’t seen the movie, but having Lego addicts in my family – for years, I have spent my fair share on Legos of all kinds and given them as gifts.
The first few stanzas of the “Everything is Awesome” Lego song fits Special Olympics and our State Summer Games perfectly. In case you haven’t heard it …
“Everything is awesome. Everything is cool when you’re part of a team.
Everything is awesome when you’re living our dream.
Everything is better when we stick together.
Side by side, you and I are gonna win – forever.
We’re the same. I’m like you – you’re like me – we’re all working in harmony.”
Those words will take human form May 19th – 21st. If you aren’t already planning to attend the Games – consider yourself personally invited. I feel safe in saying you won’t be sorry you did.
