Well, my mother is in my life and in my mind everyday.
[Eunice Shriver (July 10, 1921 – August 11, 2009)]
You are the stars and the world is watching you.
She wanted me to believe that I could do anything I set my mind to. She would always be like you can, you must, you will, just go do it.
My mother was a force of nature. Growing up I never saw anybody like her. She had kind of wild thick hair. She wore men’s pants. She smoked cigars. She worked. She played tackle football. She was a competitive forceful free spirit and she changed the world.
Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave the attempt.
She felt that her sister Rose Mary, who had an intellectual disability, was disrespected by society. Mother’s of children with intellectual disabilities didn’t have the opportunities that other mothers had. And so that’s why she started Camp Shriver in our backyard, which then became Special Olympics. She would have a 100 kids dropped off every morning running around, learning how to swim, learning how to do archery, tennis, horseback riding.
By your presence, you send a message to every village, every city, every nation, a message of hope, a message of victory.
She was determined that our special friends would be able to go to school, be on the playing field, be accepted, be respected. I think, she really was the Mother of Special Olympics and she saw everybody who was involved in Special Olympics as her children of sorts.
My mother really always talked also about motherhood, the power that a mother has to create another human being with a sense of self-esteem, with a sense of possibility, that’s a job that you should honor.
You know, as I say to kids who come over to my house, you know, your mother isn’t just a chauffeur, your mother isn’t just somebody who does your laundry and brings your book to school. This is a person who is making sacrifices all the time, so that your life can be better. So I think the more we can acknowledge moms in our own homes and beyond, the more women will feel empowered in that role. And perhaps each of us could stop saying “I’m just a mom”

Nice kick, but just a little straighter your leg, see my leg is way out like that, then I go up and down, but it’s straighter, okay.
You know, there are all kinds of mothers, you know, and they all should be – seem to be a value. And we are mother in different ways. You don’t have to go out and start a Special Olympics movement, if you can raise a child with self-esteem, game over for me.
Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the 2007 Minerva Lifetime Achievement Award, our grandma, our hero, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
