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.
This was a statement from a praticipant at a resent Policy Summit I attended. I was afforded the opportunity at attend the summit and meet with over 30 Groups who are focused on Disability Issues throughout the state to come up with a unified message for the new Administration coming into Madison in January. By no means was this every group.
Let me first congratulate thewinners from yesterday's elections. I do not envy the challenges that lie ahead for you. I sometimes wonder why I thought about getting involved.
The comment that I have heard the most in reference to the Challenger Baseball Story (http://www.fox6now.com/witi-101010-challenger-baseball,0,421962.story) was that every kid, every parent, every sibling, every Buddy, had a smile on their face throughout the story. For those who were not familiar with the league, I told them that this is the reaction that we have every week from the kids, parents, siblings and buddy's. These athletes are doing what they love because they want to, not because somebody is making them do it. These parents are only giving their children an opportunity to play a game they may have loved as a kid. I have never seen a parent trying to live out their dream, through their child. When the kids have had enough, then that it is it until next week.
Tuesday, November 2 is another Election Day. As with all Elections, this is a very important Election. We are still waging the war against terrorism, we have health care issues and we still have way to many people either unemployed or under employed. There is no quick fix for any of these issues.
