Today in the baseball world, one brave man is celebrated. That man, Jackie Robinson, broke the color barrier and became the first black man to play in major league baseball. An amazingly brave man, or just a man out to play the game he loved, Jackie Robinson is a hero in my mind. How the world would be a different place today without him.

Jackie Robinson breaks major league color barrier
As a parent of a child with special needs, I would love to see our children accepted into society the way Jackie Robinson finally accepted Jackie Robinson. It was a LONG HARD road for Jackie and those that supported Jackie. I guess this road is the road taken by us parents of a child with a special need, since our children need to be part of today;s world and a active participant in the society in which they live.
Jackie Robinson, I salute you.
