  1. Often the most gifted among us are overlooked while the spotlight shines on
    many unworthy of our attention. Special needs children often never survive
    the journey out of the womb. In many nations those that do survive are all
    too often abandoned and institutionalied. Now nations are on the cusp of
    legalising child euthanasia, so even the few who survive are not guaranteed
    life. How can we ignore the plight of our most vulnerable citizens? How can
    we allow these voiceless among us to be condemned to life sentences or
    death simply because we don’t recognise their gifts? We all must stand and
    confront this grave evil. 

  2. Diagnosis: cerebral palsy and other health issues
    Bryce Staverman was born without the part of the brain that controls his
    gross and fine motor skills. He cannot walk or talk, but he can understand
    much more than people might think. A family friend gave him an iPad for
    Christmas last year, and he uses it to communicate, track his GPS location,
    search for roller coasters and take his own videos. Watching him makes you
    wonder about the mysteries of the mind. “No one ever asks for a child with
    special needs,” says his mom, Kris. “But maybe they should, because what
    they give you is they look at the world with happiness and joy — and they
    give unconditional love.”
