Pretty cool moment happened last night as the Kansas City Chiefs’ star Running Back, Jamaal Charles, spoke publicly and passionately about his struggles with his learning/reading disability, how he overcame it, how he too was once a Special Olympics competitor, and how the event helped him discover a talent he “did not know that he had”…

Charles then led the crowd at the LA Coliseum in the traditional Special Olympics opening ceremonies athlete oath…

Powerful stuff, to say the least…
