By de Chacon very Early in life people discover that there is such a thing As second place. Very Early they learn that not All persons can nor will be winners. As in any race whether it be a foot race or the race for life there Are winners and losers. There is the thrill of Victory a the agony of defeat a the exasperation of the will in Effort the desire to try once again. But a Victory can be a shallow thing if you cannot share it with spectators and the agony of defeat can be compounded if there is no one to say a we saw you try to do your Best and we shared that moment with the will to try again can be broken by Lack of support. Too Many times the retarded face defeat but defeat is a reality a a reality we must All face sometime some Day some place. We realize that we must face defeat a that sometimes we have to Settle for second place but a retarded person too often must Settle for second place in the great race a the human race the race for life for pleasure for rights. But this does not always have to be. Sometimes the cheer of the crowds can be Worth More than the Gold in the medal you have Hung around your neck. For if no one knows you be won or they done to acknowledge it then you must take the self satisfaction the Sweet taste of Victory brings a if you Are capable of self satisfaction. For the retarded As in All of us there is a need to be recognized. Its especially True of the retarded. It s the a look Here i am world syndrome. The loser is left alone amidst the cheers for the Winner and if there is no Roar for his Heartfelt Effort then the aloneness is even lonelier and the will to try again is weakened. A what i want is to win but if i lose As i know some must i done to want to be alone because i know the meaning of loneliness and i have been alone too Long. A i can run and swim and jump and throw a Ball but most of All i can think and feel and i need you there to cheer me on to whatever place i must take and then even if i lose ill know you recognized my Effort and i will try 20 pages March i 1973 jurors Are selected trials begin March 19 thirty jurors were selected tuesday and trials will begin in District court in los Lunas on March 19.
