On the wall we have a recent photo of Eunice waist‚Äźdeep in the pool, bathing cap on, stretching her shoulder. She's about to swim laps with friends, Special Olympics Athletes. She added a note scribbled on the bottom, enjoining us to be in the pool next summer. This is pure Eunice; hands-on, passionate and well humored.

Congratulations for 40 years of work that has become a beautiful legacy of dignity, love, and mutual respect that reaches around the globe. We celebrate this movement as we celebrate you on your 88th birthday!
