A Clown's Stolen Heart

My name Is Paul Brosnan and I am a member of the Fort Smith Shrine Club. I am a Shriner Clown. Each year we participate in the Super Kids Rodeo at the Old Fort Days Rodeo here in Fort Smith, Arkansas. This year, my wife Paula and I got the opportunity to meet Alex and Ali. They are best friends; both have Down syndrome and both stole our Hearts. Before we said goodbye Alex started to walk away and then stopped and reach his hand out to Ali, and they walked away together.
