My mother in-law, Eunice Kennedy Shriver—I always like to mention her, because it gets me on the good side of her—she, for instance, started an organization called Special Olympics. She stared Special Olympics which is for people with mental disabilities. And of course when she started that organization she was told by the experts, "Don’t do it. You cannot take people with mental disabilities out of mental institutions and have them participate in sports events.They will drown in the swimming pools. They will kill each other out there, they will hurt each other. Don’t do it." But Eunice Kennedy Shriver had a dream and a passion, and today millions of people compete in Special Olympics around the world, including right here in China. This is why I was here five years ago. Five years ago you had 50,000 participants in the Special Olympics. Today, five years later, you have 500,000 participants in Special Olympics. 500,000people are getting a chance to participate in sports programs, getting a chance to have healthcare, have a chance to be treated equally, with respect and with tolerance. So Eunice Kennedy Shriver exemplifies that the individual can make a difference.
And I think what I’m trying to say to you is that each and every one of you can make a difference. So as you study and as you become smarter, and as you become richer, think about that, that there are millions of people that need your help.
