On July 24, 2008 what a day it was for Spin-Off. Along with Mike, Santina, OutThere and Jahid, I met many of the worlds greatest young adults and children competing in Piscataway, NJ at the Paralympics. Organized by Mountainside, NJ - Children's Specialized Hospital and Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation. I been in a few events that I always get a new experience from, it was like a break of the thermometer. Being around the worlds greatest cultures of children in a situation we all shared as one just put me over the top. Wasn't a feeling of fear of another human being, it was UNITY at it's highest level and for this organized event to give everyone this feeling, it was heaven on earth.
Sure it was a competition, but it was felt more of a loving day out with the world. I felt no shame and to many of my physically challenged peers, you know when you go out, sometime you feel a little embarrassed or like you're being stared at. Not here, we were all family on that field. I was sadden that I had to leave and may never see these young athletes ever again. But we have the internet and I hope to contact many of them again.

"Best That We Can Be" was a song written because someone asked for it. It was Ms Kelly FAN of the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) who came to one
of MTL's (Musical Theatre Limited) Songwriter Showcases in May 2008. The SDSC hosts the elite sports of the Paralympic Games and this year they are fielding
Singapore athletes to Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games.
This musical composition is inspired by SDSC's mission and the recognition that "The only diability in this world is not Daring to DREAM".
Desmond Moey & Roland Ang first created the tune. And on one Saturday afternoon, huddled at Coffee Bean (Waterloo Street) together with Ms Stella KON and Mr
CheeTian LEE, they ploughed through the lyrics, tested the sensibility and singability using the powerful BandBox software to complete the song.
Kelly FAN and Jeff ANG of SDSC find the piece carries the spirit of human excellence very well. Hence we now have this lovely song that can inspire many.
The MTL journey with SDSC (and SNPC - Singapore National Paralympic Council) is a "long distance marathonic". It is just the beginning of a "Music and
Motion" mission that will complete the drive toward not only excellence in the Elite Sports, but also the notion that disability is simply a continuum in the
scale of human abilities - we do the utmost with our abilities, we be the Best That We Can Be.
