Charlie

By June 23, 2011Church

At dinner last night I had the privilege of sitting next to Charlie, a young boy with autism and suffering from cerebal palsy.  Over baked ziti we discussed the pro’s and con’s of Obamacare, the rising national debt, and why people are selfish.  All at his prompting.

Most other kids would look at Charlie and decide he’s too goofy or odd to hang around with.  But not here at Opportunity Camp.  Charlie walks around with three or four other guys, guys he didn’t know before camp and may not see afterwards.  And he models friendliness for them.  On the first day Charlie won a Golden State Warriors blanket.  Then he gave it to kid who was cold.  I told him he was a leader because leaders lead by example.  He seemed to like that.

Just another reason I believe in Opportunity Camp.
