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.
While finishing up helping my son on part of a school project the other night, I sat down and watched a few minutes of American Idol, Idol Gives Back (I am not a regular viewer of the show), a statement was made about American Students falling behind other industrialized nations when it comes to math and science. This reminded me that I have been hearing this same statement for many years now.
I was recently asked about my wife’s participation in the parenting process. I have asked her to write a guest blog, but I have decided to put my two cents in first since this is my blog.
I was recently asked if I could change anything about being a father, would I do it. I am sure the person was asking if I could change my son’s diagnosis of Down syndrome and autism, would I. I was able to quickly and confidently answer No I would not change a thing.
Something that has always been a pet peeve of mine, but now that I drive to Mwenomonee Falls every day and the weather is getting warmer, I see it more often.
The last 24 hours has brought out some of the best in people and why I believe that Cudahy is very close to turning things around and becoming that community where everybody takes pride in telling people where they are from. We do not need a tragic event to bring the citizens together. We just need people to believe that all things together make this a community. All things added together make the whole. No effort is too small. It probably takes more small efforts to make something successful then a larger one.
