In Brooklyn, New York, Chush is a school that caters to learning disabled
 > children.
 > Some children remain in Chush for their entire school career, while others
 > can be main-streamed into conventional schools.
 > At a Chush fund raising dinner, the father of a Chush child delivered a
 > speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended.
 > 
 > After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he cried out, "Where
 > is the perfection in my son Shaya?
 > Everything God does is done with perfection.  But my child cannot
 > understand things as other children do.
 > My child cannot remember facts and figures as other children do.  Where is
 > God's perfection?"
 > 
 > The audience was shocked by the question, pained by the father's anguish
 > and stilled by the piercing query.
 > "I believe," the father answered, "that when God brings a child like this
 > into the world, the perfection that he seeks is in the way people react to
 > this child."
 > 
 > He then told the following story about his son Shaya.
 > One afternoon Shaya and his father walked past a park where some boys
 > Shaya knew were playing baseball. 
 > Shaya asked, "Do you think they will let me play?"  
 > Shaya's father knew that his son was not at all athletic and that most
 > boys would not want him on their team.  
 > But Shaya's father understood that if his son was chosen to play it would
 > give him a comfortable sense of belonging.
 > 
 > Shaya's father approached one of the boys in the field and asked if Shaya
 > could play.
 > The boy looked around for guidance from his teammates.
 > Getting none, he took matters into his own hands and said, "We are losing
 > by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning.
 > I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him up to bat in the
 > ninth inning."
 > Shaya's father was ecstatic as Shaya smiled broadly.
 > 
 > Shaya was told to put on a glove and go out to play short center field.
 > In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shaya's team scored a few runs but was
 > still behind by three.
 > In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shaya's team scored again and now with
 > two outs and the bases loaded with the potential run on base,
 > Shaya was scheduled to be up.
 > 
 > Would the team actually let Shaya bat at this juncture and give away their
 > chance to win the game?  Surprisingly, Shaya was given the bat.  
 > Everyone knew that it was all but impossible because Shaya didn't even
 > know how to hold the bat properly, let alone hit with it.
 > 
 > However as Shaya stepped up to the plate, the pitcher moved a few steps to
 > lob the ball in softly so Shays should be at least able to make contact.
 > The first pitch came in and Shaya swung clumsily and missed.  One of
 > Shaya's teammates came up to Shaya and together they held the bat and 
 > faced the pitcher waiting for the next pitch.
 > 
 > The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly toward
 > Shaya.  
 > As the pitch came in, Shaya and his teammate swung at the bat and together
 > they hit a slow ground ball to the pitcher.
 > The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could easily have thrown the
 > ball to the first baseman. 
 > Shaya would have been out and that would have ended the game.
 > Instead, the pitcher took the ball and threw it on a high arc to right
 > field, far beyond the reach of the first baseman.
 > 
 > Everyone started yelling, "Shaya, run to first. Run to first."  Never in
 > his life had Shaya run to first.
 > He scampered down the baseline wide-eyed and startled.  By the time he
 > reached first base, the right fielder had the ball.
 > He could have thrown the ball to the second baseman who would tag out
 > Shaya, who was still running.  
 > But the right fielder understood what the pitcher's intentions were, so he
 > threw the ball high and far over the third baseman's head.
 > Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second."  Shaya ran towards second
 > base as the runners ahead of him deliriously circled the bases towards
 > home.
 > As Shaya reached second base, the opposing short stop ran to him, turned
 > him in the direction of third base and shouted, "Run to third."
 > As Shaya rounded third, the boys from both teams ran behind him screaming,
 > "Shaya run home."  
 > Shaya ran home, stepped on home plate and all 18 boys lifted him on their
 > shoulders and made him the hero, as he had just hit a "grand slam" 
 > and won the game for his team.
 > 
 > "That day," said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face,
 > "those 18 boys reached their level of God's perfection."
 > 
 > Funny how this is so true and shame on us!
 > 
 > Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the
 > world is going to hell.
 > 
 > Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible
 > says.
 > 
 > Or is it scary?  
 > 
 > Funny how someone can say "I believe in God" but still follow Satan (who
 > by the way, also "believes" in God)
 > 
 > Funny how you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread
 > like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord,
 > people think twice about sharing.
 > 
 > Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through
 > cyberspace, but the public discussion of Jesus is suppressed in the school
 > and workplace.
 > 
 > Funny isn't it?
 > 
 > Funny how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an
 > invisible Christian the rest of the week.
 > 
 > Are you laughing? 
 > 
 > Funny how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to
 > many of your address list because you're not sure what they believe, 
 > or what they will think of you for sending it to them.
 > 
 > Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than
 > what God thinks of me.
 > 
 > Are you thinking?
