Today is the last day of my vacation and I'm going to take it off. Instead of a post today I am going to refer you to a blog written by my friend Susan who writes every Friday for the faith blog Whatever He Says. She writes about her gentle confrontation with a member of her family regarding the 'r' word. The only correction I would make to her post is that she states the 'words hit' campaign was intitiated by me. I'd love to take that credit but the campaign was actually started as a result of a request for community safety from a Vita member and then was designed in consultation with Manuela Dalla Nora, Vita's executive director and Vince Papa of Ancaster Pope Communications, along with various self advocates and staff.
I will ask you to read that blog in preparation for my blog tomorrow. I was going to write it today but I'm too angry and need to settle down a bit before writing it. I'll do so much later today after a period of time for reflection. Then, tomorrow, I'm going to ask you, maybe even beg you, for help. Action is sometimes needed. I believe it is needed now. But ... wait ... that's for tomorrow. For now, drop by and visit Susan ...
Oh, right, tease us and leave us with antici ...
LOL @ Anonymous!! Enjoy your last day of holidays, Dave!
I'm sorry you had to deal with something that made you that angry.
Dave, I sent off messages to all three first thing this morning. On behalf of myself and my family thank you for bringing this to our attention. Shame on them!
