My new favourite commercial: Special Olympics Commercial 'Different' - 41 seconds

A positive difference.

Working with the Special Olympics shows my bravery because I have to stand up for the participants because people often pick on them. It makes me brave because I care about them and would do anything for them, even if it means my friends giving me a hard time or making of fun of me. I am a proud advocate of special olympics, their bravery makes me brave. - C. H. #OneBraveThing

Life with Down syndrome is full of possibilities.
