Pretty explosive set-up, if you ask me. Could easily have become a Hiroshima situation. However, these activists were not only passionate, but extremely bright, insightful, well-versed in their particular area, and oriented toward the good of patients everywhere. What could have been an atomic disaster was more like the best fireworks display I could imagine.
And a display that I'll be posting about soon, I swear. I'm going to share with you the magic sign that represents the outcome of our session, major themes discussed, questions & concerns I want to hear your thoughts on, and where this is all going from here...just as soon as I can possibly get the post written. But as I had to take time from work at a critical point in my current engagement to attend, I'm even MORE backed up! I'm also trying to plan my office's Disability Mentoring Day as part of the National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October (yet another amazing post topic coming your way). So, to do my post on the Coalition justice, I just ask that you bear with me a few more days so I can get it together.
But not to leave you high and dry - here is a picture from the session. As you can see, I am making some (no doubt, mindblowing) point to the group...and talking with my hands. This is apparently a ubiquitous "Jen" pose. I think I remember what I was saying at the time...but would love to hear your guesses! So let's have a little game, shall we!
WIN A UII PRIZE!!
Take a look at the picture below, and leave a comment with your guess at what I'm saying! (Funny or serious, just not crude or offensive please.) You have one week (cut off will be midnight on 9/29), at which point I'll pick the best and send you a small prize!! You can also leave comments voting for responses you like best:)
Ready, get set, GUESS!
