I thought I could put together a nice, short list of music documentaries. It just got out of hand.

Disabilities – Practice Love

When I was in junior high and washing dishes at the local coney island restaurant. I experienced two moments related to disabilities that affected my life. First while mopping the floor a customer approached me to ask a question. The customer had a speech impediment, I tried to listen and understand but I could not. Fortunately a waitress came over and bailed me out.

The second time I had a good friend who only had one hand. One day he asked me to put in a good word for him to the manager since he wanted to work at the coney as a dishwasher. When I mentioned him to the manager, the manager gave me an angry look and said he couldn’t work at the coney. When I inquired the manager pointed at his own hand. I told the manager that he was really good at sports hoping that might change his mind. But he refused even to interview or try out my friend. I was hurt and I told my friend. I didn’t realize the hurt my friend would feel. I cared about him but I didn’t understand his situation.

Some may not want your help. That’s alright. Always respond with kindness and love.

I’ve spent these many years actively listening instead of jumping in and unsuccessfully trying to complete someone’s thought. I had to train myself to do so.

When you want to help it’s too easy to assume to know what that person needs. Relax, listen and take your time. The help you provide may be to make you feel better. So don’t get upset if you don’t get the “proper” response from the person you helped.

Do it for yourself. Do it for them. Do it for love.

Approach with Kindness.

I haven’t been as brave as I should.

Throughout history most “rights” movements have ignored people with disabilities.

When you know it’s time to do the right thing Do It. Suffer the consequences. It’s all about building integrity. We need to help those who need it. We need to help those who need it and don’t ask. Be there as support and respect their humanity.

I get a charge from helping others.

We must care for one another

Shall We Share a Protest?

From my limited world view I believe that humans have protested since two or more of us have gotten together. Someone had an idea and needed to be heard. Good and bad protests have shaped us. Good and bad people protest and to them their beliefs are true and need to be heard. There are many ways to protest. I support protesters and those who protest protesters. Though in my belief no violence or harm to others, including property, must be used.
