Fighting for Your Disabled Child

I think everyone learns differently. Please watch this! This case manager is breaking the law. The IEP is supposed to be flexible enough to be changed at any time! It is not OK for this girl to that she is not good enough or bright enough!

Reflections of Yesteryear

Reflections of Yesteryear

Today, I received a package from my Aunt Gloria filled with memories and treasures, some never I had seen,

Some were of Grandma and Grandpa, who I never really had the chance to know, still married they were,

 Photos black and white of a smallish home, it didn’t seem quite big enough for eight active kids and teens,

Inside were also photos of a handsome young man going off to defend our country, leaving the cold, Burr.

 

I wonder what he thought as he left his family and young lady behind for California’s sunny beaches and the bugle calls,

Though he returned two years later to marry his young lady and take her with him in his gleaming blue car.

A “Just married” sign hung on the back of it as he took her to a new life at the oceanside and seagulls

I wonder what she thought as she traded green, rolling hills for palm trees and mountains tall and far.

 

As I looked through the photos, there was a card written almost 25 years after for birthday,

On the back was a note, reflecting life’s changes, he told his dad that he was going to marry a new wife,

The hope, happiness and joy felt by the young couple, so long ago, was not meant to stay,

The photos and treasures tell a story, and they are snapshots in time, reflections and intersections of life.

Haiku PRESS AND TOUCH

Mom 1961Senior '83

Mom and I @ the age of 17, Senior photos

GOD BLESS YOU MOM

Pressed my hand to hers,

Knew I would see her no more,

Our last moment, touch

 

Pressed Mom to me, We

Rocked in the chair of my youth

 Was a dream, our touch.

Haiku Horror & Nightmare

nativity

His Love Wins

To Mary’s horror,

 Jesus born in a manger was

King Herod’s nightmare.

 

Jesus, no earthly King,

Herod murdered infants, his sins

But Jesus’ Love Wins!
