OH! My Goodness!!!!!!!!! #JusticeForEthan

From the archive: Originally posted 4/11/13 OK… So it really IS true, the more things change, the more they stay the same. As I noted in my last post, I’ve been trying to learn Twitter speak.  I’m new to that particular social networking technology.  So as a newbie, I did a search on Down syndrome … Continue reading

Up Next – 8 MORE Days for Ethan – #JusticeForEthan

From the archives: Originally posted 4/11/13  I have been inspired and awakened by the campaign designed by Little Bird’s Dad to raise awareness and generate activity for #JusticeForEthan.  The last day of “8 Days for Ethan” left us with a challenge – create our own 8 Days for Ethan to continue the work which has … Continue reading

Today’s Joshism – Leftovers Galore!

From the archive: Originally posted 4/18/13 Josh and I are “scheduly challenged.” Ok, by that I mean we don’t keep to a schedule, of any kind.  We don’t even keep the same schedule between us. So, when I fix his dinners, I usually put them in plastic containers in the frig so he can eat … Continue reading

Dreams, big, small, & gargantuan

  Every now and then, I get the urge (and the time) to dream. Sometimes it’s a small dream, like, “wouldn’t it be nice to have a huge chocolate sundae?” Sometimes it’s a little bigger and involves finding just the right job or place to live.  Every now and then I allow myself the luxury … Continue reading

To Train or Not To Train? – #JusticeForEthan

From the archive: Originally published 4/21/13 Full disclosure first – in my previous life (my career for 15 years or so before I went back to college full time) I was a trainer.  That’s what I did for a living.

Frustration Sets In – or – Focusing On The Bigger Picture and Lessons From The Sixties

From the archive: Originally posted 4/23/13 As we move forward in the pursuit of justice, what can we learn from the experiences of civil rights activists from the sixties? What Are Civil Rights? First of all, let’s look at the definition of civil rights from Cornell University Law School: A civil right is an enforceable … Continue reading

Theory Meets Reality – Again

From the archive: Originally posted 4/24/13 This morning I had another taste of “theory meets reality.” Cautious or Over Protective? This next month will bring two important dates for someone important to us.  It’ll be a year since our friend had what doctors call “the widow maker” heart attack, and he’ll turn 50.  I vividly … Continue reading

My Son Is Different – And That’s OK!

From the archive: Originally posted 4/29/13    A thought that’s been weighing heavily on my mind lately is one that’s not going to be popular.  It seems to go against things that are important to me and many others.   But, if I’m going to be true to myself and to Josh, I have to say it.  … Continue reading

Get it Straight – About “The Aide” (#JusticeForEthan)

From the archive: Originally posted 3/29/13 Ever since the grand jury decided not to indict the three officers involved it seems there are more online comments from people who blame the caregiver who was with Ethan. I only know what’s been reported: “The family’s lawyer said Tuesday that the aide had gone to get the … Continue reading
