Oprah sits down with Special Olympics chairman Timothy Shriver who shares how he created a movement that focuses on acceptance, inclusion and respect for individuals with intellectual disabilities. He also shares with Oprah some of the hard fought lessons he’s learned from the athletes of the Special Olympics, why he feels courage and grit are fundamental to success and why vulnerability is a virtue that he feels everyone can nourish. The son of Sargent Shriver, vice presidential candidate in 1972 and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics in 1968, Timothy grew up among some of the most powerful public and political figures in American history. They also discuss his new memoir “Fully Alive: Discovering What Matters Most,” where Timothy shares the story of the remarkable teachers and inspiring way of life he discovered during his lifelong search for how to make a difference in the world.
