People with positive attitudes get mad, just like anyone else, and they don't spend their days with a smile plastered on their faces covering up their frustrations. A positive attitude is someone who is proactive, who finds a desire within themselves to create positive change.

Wil is not typical because he has 47 chromosomes, while all the other children in his classroom have 46. In other words, Wil has Down syndrome, and his classmates do not. Seeger is not typical, because it's not common to hear kids share these everyday types of conversations with Wil.

I find inspiration in teens and adults with cerebral palsy doing everyday things. If I saw an adult with cerebral palsy in a pool swimming, I'd be psyched. I am inspired because of the hope they give me that Max will do the same when he is older.

When you do something unexpected or out of the ordinary, it rarely starts out as such. You do it because you want to or because it could lead to a better way of life. You're not thinking about the lasting impact it may or may not have on people, or how they will react to your decision to do something crazy.
