I have a little routine every morning. I get the kids up for school, make them breakfast, yell at them a couple of times to hurry up or they will be late. Once they get out the door, I look over the news. I do look at the big stories, but I am looking for something in particular. I look for news specific to disabilities or things that affect parents trying to raise their kids in this crazy culture.
Have you noticed that our leaders don’t seem to be on the same page right now? By on the same page, I mean with us and each other. Is the new healthcare law good or bad? I can’t tell if it will give insurance to everybody or create limits on how much healthcare we can get. Meanwhile, we’re dealing with giant deficits of numbers I can’t even fathom. I know this is a bunny trail but how can 600 million people owe 14 trillion dollars? Can anybody tell me where that all went?
How about public workers and their unions? Like them or hate them, I can’t tell if they are good for America or bad. I’d like to make 30% more than everybody else, or pay nothing for my insurance, but how come they can’t balance a budget without taking from those on the lowest end of the pay scale?
What about the rest of the world? Who put the hate blender on puree? If they aren’t mad at us they are mad at some other group in their own country, the government, the military, or other ethnic groups. Could the United Nations be any more useless? By the time they make a decision the uprising is over and some new oppressor is in power gearing up for his 30-year reign.
These stories leave me with a sense that our leaders and most of the adults in the world just aren’t getting it right. When it comes to disabilities, it seems the next generation can show us a thing two about understanding.
Take Molly Moyer; at thirteen she wanted others to experience what it was like to be in a modeling pageant. She and her mother put on a pageant for the local jobs skill program girls. They collected aluminum cans to pay for supplies and pizza. http://news-herald.com/articles/2011/04/09/news/nh3854428.txt
Joe Fairbanks is a young man with a disability who organized a disability awareness fair for his Eagle Scout project. 23 agencies were represented at his event.
Some students and parents put on special proms to share the fun and excitement with others who don’t always get the chance to attend. Even small gestures like this are encouraging.
These are just a few stories I have seen in the news lately. While I am not so impressed with our elected officials these days, I am really impressed with how much the next generation is getting involved with the disability community. I say that is some really great news!
Но, по-видимому, он любимец его отца.
Зеб yжe слышал об этом дополнительном исследовании, о том, как Спенглер и его "Nikon p510 инструкция" товарищи проследили обратный путь лошади Генри Пойндекстера до того места, где негр поймал ее на границе плантации.
Я этого и ожидал прямо в просеку.
