I Am Aware Now

November is National Disability Awareness Month.

Wendy just told me that after I shared with her the fascinating bit of information that October had been National Stamp Collecting Month.

Her bit of news is more relevant. I never have been able to get that excited about stamps. Except when I need one and don't have it. Then I can get excited. But disabled persons? They are everywhere.

You, too, are now aware.

Okay, now that we are aware, what do we do for the rest of the month?

Well for a start, keep your eyes open. Pay attention to those around you who may be disabled and lend a hand when possible. Then carry that over to next month. And the month after.

And celebrate your own abilities by sharing them with others.

trisha said...

Check on the first part; I always help others.

As soon as I am convinced I have abilities, I shall share them.

Suzanne said...

Well, Trish. In my own humble opinion, you are already sharing one of your abilities... via your blog. :)

Nothing to do with Disability Awareness Month, but... good grief, woman, almost 4,000 words already? Are you trying to make the rest of us look bad? ;-) Seriously, go!

In my quest for procrastination I answered your comment over on my blog. OK now I'm pulling out the wireless card.

Hell no els, I'm not trying to make anyone look bad. I am losing three writing days later this week due to travel. I'm trying to get ahead to make up for it.

12,500 by Thursday night is the target.
Just might make it. :)
