Peace, Hope, Love, and Kindness Linky Party - Boy With Cerebral Palsy Competes in Triathlon

I am linking up with Ideas by Jivey for the Peace, Hope, Love, and Kindness Linky Party! 

I am so glad to have found this linky party! Life can be discouraging at times, especially with all that's on the news. We need to hear about the positive things still going on in the world to keep us uplifted. What I am about to share is not a recent occurrence, but I was reminded of it this morning and wanted to share it. A 9 year old boy, Connor, has a 6 year old brother with cerebral palsy. It bothered Connor that his brother could not play with him outside. Connor came up with an idea to enter a triathlon together. He told his dad that he would not enter if his brother could not be by his side. They didn't win, but they finished it together. This decision, that may seem small to Connor, has changed his brother's life forever. 

Pin It!
