Recently I got the opportunity to watch some students show off their athletic skills at Sakura Machi Elementary School's Sports Festival, in the center of Nagasaki City, Japan. They ran 50 metres, 100 metres races and even siblings participated in in one game where each family was given fishing lines to hook a bag full of treasures.
However, the highlight of the day were the eight special needs children who were allowed to particpate in all activities with their peers. Their teachers assisted them in competing in all the races and dances as everyone cheered them on. My soul was filled with joy as I witnessed love, equality and justice.
