Since those pioneer/grassroots days of establishing the most basic rights and freedoms for all persons (meeting their individual needs) we have, indeed, come a long way, baby! That, however, brings us to today, facing the most difficult challenges of day-to-day living for everyone.
I am continuing my education- through example, as a parent in everyday life, as a nurse serving those with special needs, and as an advocate reaching out to others, through the media (published articles & radio), presentations, and speaking engagements. I am attending budget hearings, to share my experiences, to find solutions and hope for positive alternatives to benefit all of us- as American citizens faced with these challenges, are insurmountable alone. But together, with positive minds and actions, we can not only climb that mountain; when we get to the top, we can smile at the next one ahead.***
