Boy with Ds inducted into the National Honors Society

I had written an article a while back for SpecialNeeds.com about having high expectations and pushing the limits.  Today I read a wonderful, inspiring story that reinforced my belief in expecting the best from our children whether they have 46 or 47 chromosomes.

John Marrs, a young man with Down syndrome, was recently inducted into the National Honors Society at his highs school.  For those of you who have heard of the NHS or were perhaps even members know what an amazing achievement this is.  Can I hear a "whoot whoot"?!  Congratulations John!!!!
