Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Found My Calling?

A coworker today gave me a flyer from Partners in Policymaking which had information on a "Class 25" which is a 9 month course that meets one weekend a month and teaches leadership skills in the developmental disability arena.

My coworker's comment to me?

"I thought you would be awesome at this."

And I would.

Forty people per year are accepted into this program. They commit to one weekend per month for 9 months and in return their meals are paid, their mileage is reimbursed, their lodging is paid for, and they are filled with legislative, legal, and political advocacy information that will allow them to return to their communities to be a leader in their local disability arena.

I feel as though the hand of God has nudged me and pointed me in this direction. I have been SEARCHING and I have been SEEKING an opportunity such as this.

If I am not accepted this year, I will be accepted next year, or the next. This is what I am here to do...To help people help themselves....And to help people help their children...

Just like I try to do everyday....
