“We are very proud of our Island athletes that have achieved the highest level within their sports. We have five athletes that have attended the Paralympic Games and three have earned medals.” That was a recent comment from Tracy Stevenson, the Executive Director of ParaSport and Recreation PEI, a non profit charitable organization established in 1974. The organization is run by a volunteer Board of Directors, whose mission is to provide recreation and sports opportunities for Islanders with a physical disability. They do not seem to regard people with disabilities as disabled, but as ordinary people who happen to have disabilities, and they treat them as full equals to all the rest of us. They see people with disabilities just a God sees us all. Dr. Luke, wrote in the Book of Acts, “Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.” or , “God shows no partiality.” How good to know that the One Who made us all loves us all equally, regardless of our colour, race or problems. That a minute of truth!
