January 23: International Day of Mourning and Memory
This video was created last year for the first International Day of Mourning and Memory and I wanted to share it again as we approach the day itself. I've had some emails from people who are going to be writing things that day and I hope to be able to put links and information here on the blog. If you'd like your post to be listed please ensure that I get that link. You can put it here or on the post the day itself.
There is a Facebook page which was sent to me by John who is a frequent commenter here on my blog and has a brand spanking new blog called Training Wheels which, if you are a direct support professional, you may want to visit. The video and the Facebook page may help you into the spirit of the day and I hope you choose to participate in some way.
I truly believe, especially now, that we need to remember the lives lived by people with disabilities; those caged and those free. Our lives and our stories matter, we have things to say and we have things to contribute and because of that - we have lived and are living memorable lives.
