Testimony of Joseph David Aburto

By Paola Martinelli

Unified Football Team

Throughout our lives we experience many experiences that help us see things differently, and it helps some of us to be better or be worse, each depends on how you decide to see it. Events as they happen to us are good or bad and at times are usually quite stressful and even painful, but it depends on us how we will face it, because often it stagnates us and we forget to live our lives. we worry so much about material things that we forget the wonders. This is what I teach Special Olympics. I was fortunate to be part of a unified football event, and it was a great experience, and I loved the truth and the effect it has on me. Everything involving this, from competing against other countries, seeing new places, but mostly, and the best of it was to know and live with great people and friends, "special athletes."
