Hunky Husband and I spent most of this past week in Omaha, Nebraska, meeting with others with whom we work on disaster responses - or, in my case, in serving on the regional training team for KS-NE-SW IA. The most inspirational session was one in which about 100 of us were kept entertained while being enlightened on working with people with disabilities.
Alex Valdez is a professional comedian who also gives inspirational talks. He presented our "Diversity Session", stressing that when we were processing people into a shelter necessitated by disaster, we should find the "ability" in "disability" among those whom we process. He kept us, by turns, in stitches and enrapt - especially when telling true stories of adventures with his first dog.
Speaking of "ability", just yesterday, Ronni Bennett (Time Goes By) posted the following video.
P.S. Alex Valdez has been blind since about age 6.
