I'm a fan!
I was up early yesterday morning, as I always am and was actually surfing the net. I like a sport that doesn't require balance, or indeed, standing. I came across this amazing story and an even more amazing video. It all begins with Oprah. Apparently she is now giving away a television show. That woman knows how to give a gift! People are requested to make an audition tape and then post it on the contest board.
A young man with cerebral palsy, Zach Anner, has posted an audition tape. It is clever, it is funny, it is positively brilliant. Curious, well click here to see the audition. Then ... vote.
Zach's tape has caught the attention of some major hitters in the entertainment world, that's cool. They like his moxie and his sense of humour. I'd like Zach to also feel the presence and support of the disability community. I have three hundred of you who visit faithfully, if you all voted, well, that would be three hundred more. And, if you send the link to ten each - well, do the math because I can't.
If this post ever gets to Zach, hey buddy, a travel show - you are a brave man! I travel for a living and get to deal with the lovely and friendly people at airports, the amazing accommodating people at hotels, the fabulous and welcoming waiters at restaurants I can't get into. Man, I can't wait to see how you make that funny. But I trust you will.
