The book is intriguing and refreshing. It's hard to believe that this family- namely Tim Shriver, his late mother Eunice, and his cousin Robert Kennedy- does a lot to promote the well being of special needs people. It's saddening that Rosemary Kennedy did not have the same opportunities but was rather shunned and left to the care of others.  Acceptance and tolerance for those who are different is paramount to being a compassionate human being. As a family member with 2 special needs children, I understand how important the need for understanding and support is.

I loved this book.  I always knew about Rosemary however I didn't realize that her lobotomy was done as a result of advice from doctors.  It's too bad Rosemary didn't get the opportunity to grow up in this era because due to what her family did to enhance the lives of people like her, she would have had an amazingly different lifestyle.  Her family did treat her with utmost respect including her in all of their normal activities.  Timothy does an amazing job of describing how the special olympics got started, as well as the work that is put into get it going.  I would recommend this book especially if you have any connection to special olympics, best buddies, etc.  Very well written.  One chapter at the beginning was hard for me to get through but then I couldn't put the book down.

You need to talk to her. Figure out what she likes. See what interests you both share. And most importantly dont change yourself. She will like u best as yourself. Talk to her now. Dont wait till the last moment. Trust me. I did that once and it was the worst decision i have ever made. DONT DO THAT!!! Hang out with her. Show her that you are the king of guy she wants. Hope this helped. If you have any questions please ask. Thx for reading this.~gnd3. P.S. would u like to chat with me on a normal basis?
