Restaurant Owner with Down Syndrome Serving Up Breakfast, Lunch and Hugs [VIDEO]
This is a story that just makes you feel good, and it should! In Albuquerque, New Mexico, a man named Tim Harris owns the eatery called, simply, Tim’s Place.
As far as 26-year-old Tim’s parents know, he is the only person in the United States with Down Syndrome to own a restaurant, something he’d wanted to do since he was a little boy.
Tim is so happy with his life that he dances his way into the establishment every day. Oh, he keeps a hug counter in the dining room that shows that, since the place opened, he’s given more than 59, 000 hugs!
Also, Tim is very proud of several medals he’s won competing in the Special Olympics, a charity that 92 Moose is a huge supporter of!
Tim’s spirit and passion makes me think of a quote by the great Walt Disney who said
What ever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”
