#THE GOOD DOCTOR

I am obsessed with the new television show on ABC, The Good Doctor.  Yes I am sensitive to a show like this because I had a son with disabilities.  For the first time, ABC had the gumption  and initiative to actually portray an autistic man as the main character and as a doctor as well!!!

The writers are not only creating a character with autism to teach the world that people with disabilities have abilities, but they are showing how he can make a difference with his medical team.

Look at the trailer below and you will see for yourself.  If this show will change just one person’s opinion of discrimination, one step at a time, we can change the world as well.

Forgive yourself for past aggressions and wrongful acts. Allow yourself to leave the past behind and start 2016 fresh with a clear head and a new perspective of… Continue Reading

A Day at the Park

What a beautiful day to go for a ride.  The window is open just a bit for me to feel the warm sunshine on my face and the window is adjusted just right enough to control the wind from hitting me directly.  I am excited to know where we are going.  Normally I don’t care… Continue Reading
