Two Father's Perspectives

I received the first issue in my new subscription to Newsweek magazine today. The first thing I looked at was the last page inside the back cover. It was a column written by George Will, a Pulitzer Prize-winning, conservative American newspaper columnist, journalist, and author. Mr. Will has written quite frequently about his son, Jon, who has Down Syndrome. You can read his latest column here.

I also read another column several days ago that I enjoyed. This one was written by man from the UK, Times chief sports writer Simon Barnes. He also has a son with Downs. His column is entitled, I'm not a saint, just a parent.
