Gov. Sarah Palin on Special Needs Childen

"Children with special needs, inspire very, very special love. For years you've sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters and I pledge to you if we're elected, you'll have a friend and an advocate in the White House." - Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin

As the father of a special needs child, I was very moved by Sarah Palin's statement, given at last night's Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Of course, these are not just empty words as Governor Palin's youngest son Trig has Down's Syndrome.
