    Thank you for sharing that – I am going to add the link to required readings I have for one of the courses I teach. It is a marvelous story and an even more marvelous young person.

    Mr. Shea, have you seen Anthony Esolen’s article about his autistic son? Another great testimony to the worth of the disabled.

    Its guys like this that make me wish I smoothed the wrinkles out of draw sheets for love of God and not fear of Hell.

    After a long, stressful day, this story really cheered me up. What a wonderful young man, and what an inspiring community of friends he found at Notre Dame! Most people wouldn’t think college-age men would be capable of such generous service and loyal friendship. It makes me happy to know that ND puts so much effort into making sure each student is welcome.
