I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
One of my early blogs talked about a dream that my wife and I have for individuals with developmental disabilities. We look to highlight their abilities, not their disabilities.
As I was reading various Dr Martin Luther King speechs, it is amazing that most, if not all are still relevant today. I will never know the struggles of African Americans during the Civil Rights movement other than what I have read and stories my dad has shared with me of his spring training days during a brief stint in the minor leagues. and busing from Florida to Iowa.
Being the parent of a son with autism, we are inundated with information. It is our responsibilty as parents to make the final decision as to what is right for our son. On more than one occasion, we have had to decide on immunization for him. Fortunately for us, we never belived that immunizations caused autism. We do believe in spreading out immunizations as opposed to giving more than one per day.
As I posted last week, my family and I helped serve dinner at Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church. In talking with Bev Tryba, from Nativity of The Lord and GIFTS, she said that Mayor Day had been in contact with her on a couple of occasions. Per Bev they needed to come up with a date to sit down.
