An Easter Egg Hunt, of Sorts


I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate Easter with a very inspirational story. This is the story about a young developmentally disabled young man, Phillip Reyes, 20, who is given a project at school, stuffing small pink and blue Easter bags with minature candy and bright yellow grass. According to the paper, due to his disabilities, his arms and hands often ignore his brain’s instructions, making every movement a struggle. The project was intended to be a one day project that would help him with basic motor skills and counting. He liked the project so much however, that he maneuvered his wheelchair over to the desk and with a grunt demanded more. As the bags began to pile up…well, you’ll have to read the rest of the story, here. See if you can find the “good egg” in this story.

Happy Easter!

That is one of the loveliest stories I've ever read!! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing it! I've forwarded it to a friend who works with children -- I know she'll be able to appreciate all of the subtleties of the story. And as for the good egg, sugar, that would be YOU. :)

Have a blessed Easter or happy Passover!
