Eunice Kennedy Shriver passed away at 88 today. She was beloved by all Americans because she singlehandedly created the Special Olympics for people in 1968. Before her time, people who were mentally challenged than the norm were out away in institutions. One of her sister was "special ed" diagnosed.Shriver saw to it that these people were accepted and that they could compete in special
olypic events. Now her organisation is knwon world wide as a great one.
President Reagan gave Mrs. Shriver a Medal of Honor which is the highest order a civilian can receive.
