Fully fifty years ago today, my wonderful parents welcomed me into life in Durham, N.C. Since then I’ve been to 33 countries (mostly for work) and shared amazing friendships and adventures with terrific people. Where did the time go?
In looking back on fifty years, the most cherished things in my life are the people I love (family, friends, colleagues) and the positive difference we have been able to make together on this planet.
So, as I start my next fifty years (yes, I plan to live until I am 100), I pledge to do everything I can to enable people with disabilities to be seen for the abilities, values and talents they have.
