I was in Colorado Springs last week where the essayist and scholar Kevin J. “Seamus” Hasson, founder of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, was awarded The Heritage Foundation’s 2012 Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship. I had the opportunity to shake Hasson’s hand and thank him for defending special-needs kids in Oklahoma (Becket’s lawyers are among those defending the parents of special-needs students who have been sued by vindictive bureaucrats).
Special-needs children, including some who were bullied in public schools and who dreaded the thought of going to school every day, are now seeing their lives turned around thanks to the Henry Scholarships which have enabled them to attend private schools. Their parents are exceedingly grateful for these scholarships, as you’ll see in this moving one-minute video. I encourage you to watch it and pass it along to your friends.
