This is my MLK post

I, too, have a dream.

I have a grand dream about persons with disabilities, persons like my daughter Sophie and the many children and adults that I have met here and in person, being fully accepted and included in all aspects of our culture, with all the rights and dignities accorded to all humans from birth until death.

That's my simple dream.

My more complicated dream is that my daughter Sophie will stop having seizures and live a long and happy life.

  2. All I can say is Amen to that Prayer! I see part of the reality of that dream unfold as the world and the disability world especially rallies around Amelia Rivera. Maybe she will be a modern day Rosa Parks? Could be a new chapter of history evolving before our eyes...
