Good morning Phillip,
The National Council on Disability Summit is a round table discussion (a focus group) organized by NCD to discuss disability policy moving forward. The Summit has been organized to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities ACT and the theme of the summit is "living, learning and earning and goal is to launch a national dialogue disability policies and programs in the 21th century. The summit is invitation only event and I you can realize, I am super excited to receive a invitation. Any ideas on this theme or thoughts on how disability policy can improve please feel free to share. I will be glad to send you a official invitation so that you can understand exactly what will be taking place at this summit and perhaps share some thoughts and ideas which I would love to share with policy makers and leave our impact on disability policy.
I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.
