We are the world

So that phrase takes me back to 1985 and a time when a group of musicians sang a song by that same title to raise awareness of the famine going on in Africa. Now, more than some thirty plus years later, that same phrase is referring to another cause, to help make art accessible for people with disabilities (or special abilities, as I like to say).

So the article is “Have You Thought about Art Made Accessible to Those with Disabilities” by Damyanti Biswas. It’s definitely an article worth reading, a cause worth celebrating and a phrase that, perhaps never really goes out of style. Here’s the original We are the World.

Sincerely-

As I sit continuing to plan for my son, this article is just another one of those that gives me hope for his future. The article is entitled “When an Autistic Man at the Grocery Store Gave Me a Glimpse at a Hopeful Future” by Tracy Quigley over at The Mighty. It gives me hope that one day we’ll realize we all have more in common than we know or sometimes see.

Sincerely-
