Disability and Vulnerability

I’ve been hesitant to write about a recent ordeal we’ve been through.  Given the amount of troll traffic I get and how people who have nothing better to do tend to misconstrue things for their own amusement, a friend recently asked me, “Why do you do it?  Why do you put yourself out there?”  I […]

Oh, The Tantrums They Throw

So, CNN recently published a “breaking news” story about a young woman being attacked in a parking lot by a mother after the young woman had asked the mother “nicely” inside the store to calm her child down who was throwing a tantrum.  You can see it yourself here if you haven’t already.  Boy, oh […]
