International Day of Tolerance

International Day of Tolerance Tagged with:

On November 16, I will be celebrating the United Nation’s International Day for Tolerance by doing what I usually fail to do; I will pack away my assumptions in my bag when I interact with people. This conscious effort is difficult for someone who looks different compared to the societal norm, someone with a physical disability or someone who can’t interact in a socially acceptable way because of their limitations is daily confronted with intolerance.

A Dad’s Perspective

A Dad's Perspective Tagged with:

I was asked to write a blog about raising a child with a disability from a Dad’s perspective.  At first I thought this would be a great topic.  But then I was like, “what the heck is a blog”? So, after discussing what a “ blog” is, I am like, I can do this because a blog is just like talking to someone, but in written form versus spoken. I can do that because I sell for a living and can talk forever, the hard part is to make it worthy of reading.  I hope you like my perspective/story.

I’ll take CP as part of my identity

I’ll take CP as part of my identity Tagged with:

It was World Cerebral Palsy Day on (Oct. 7), and I’m wearing a green shirt to promote awareness – just as the movement suggested I do. I live with CP, but in no way is it the top priority in my life nor does it tell me what I can or cannot do. That’s why I was a little conflicted on how to approach this day of awareness.
