Televise the 2012 Paralympics

      Brewster, MA

NBC coverage of the Olympics contributes to a positive feeling worldwide as we watch dedicated athletes strive to do their very best. If NBC televised the Paralympic events, as well, we Americans would be able to view and recognize the accomplishments of another group of extraordinary people, the paralympic athletes. It would be an opportunity for NBC to take a big step toward the recognition of physically challenged athletes who have reached the pinnacle of their physical abilities and are competing at a world class level.
The Chairman of the London Organizing Committee of Olympic and Paralympic Games, Lord Sebastian Coe, said this about the 2012 Summer Games in London, England: "We want to change public attitudes towards disability, celebrate the excellence of Paralympic sport and to enshrine from the very outset that the two Games are an integrated whole."
PLEASE TELEVISE THE 2012 PARALYMPICS!

      My son participates in wheelchair sports and is friends with a number of athletes competing in London. They deserve to be covered by NBC!
