Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Presidential DebHATE

From within the disgruntled masses came an outspoken man.

In the name of the moral majority,

he persuaded a passive public,

to target specific groups and individuals.

He blamed them for the state of the nation

and labeled them as undesirable.

Using fiery, unrestrained speech,

he spewed hatred and vindictiveness,

convincing an apathetic people to build walls and erect camps,

that lead to the execution of millions of innocent men, women and children,

and plunged the world into a war of epic proportion.

How was he able to do this you ask?

Because the public, the party, the country allowed it.

There was no outrage, no voice of reason.
No one covering their ears, and screaming for it to stop.

I am an American.

Raised by the belief that our founding forefathers designed the Constitution of the United States

to protect its citizens from those who would have you believe

that NOT all men and women are created equal.

I am covering my ears and screaming at the top of my lungs


I am pleading with the public, the party, the country,


Take back our precious humanity, our tolerance, our ability as human beings

to renounce hatred,

to revere, once again,

all that is gracious,

all that is civil

all that is precious within us and inspires us as a nation.
