What is your opinion on people with special needs/ disabilities? And what do you think of the Special Olympics? Are you at all interested in those topics, or you have never really thought about them? Any opinion and thought is welcome, just please keep everything polite and mature. This is a very serious issue and I'm only interested in discussing this in a nice way.

*If you are not interested in this, just ignore the thread.
*Don't judge anyone's opinion, it is okay to disagree with each other.
*REMEMBER: state your opinion in a calm way and people will reply also nicely.

For those of you that do watch and/or comment, thank you for your time and concern!
For those of you that don't, it's ok, it's your time and you spend it any way you choose.

Have a nice day!

I think it is brilliant that people with special needs/disabilities get a chance to show what they can do in sport. It's great that the Olympics support special needs events. :tmb:. There is so much focus on what special needs people can't do, it's refreshing to see a positive.

I don't have an opinion on them, why would I? They're just people.

Actually, that counts as an opinion: "They are just people, like the rest".

It's like I'm asking you what you think of brunettes, or people with beards, or [insert religion] people, etc, etc.
