"I want the whole world to see, not the difference, but the sameness of people with disabilities..."
"Thank you for seeing us through the eyes of acceptance..." ^the two quotes are quotes that I found on the 'net (at beautiful faces.org) and placed them here to educate others to better understand that disabled individuals aren't that 'DIFFERENT'.
about me... JT... WELCOME to the page about me-JT-the webmaster of this website!... I'm a disabled individual and wear (thick)glasses because I'm quite nearsighted.
I may have some problems, but despite my limitations (and EVERYONE has some LIMITATIONS of one sort or another), I'm an intelligent and creative person who has alot to share with others. I may be disabled in some ways but all in all I'm a very capable person, I may have to do things a bit differently than 'normal' people do things but I'm just as valueable as other people. The same is true for other disabled people who have varying degrees of capabilities. I'm in college part time for a certificate in Travel & Tourism (and doing well -A's, B's, and C's) see my other pages-about me, my interests, goals, etc... travel survey... In addition to going to college four days a week, I'm active in some non-profit organizations that serve disabled individuals...for example the Northeast Independant Living Program, INC. (NILP)-I'm in the process of setting up a web presence for NILP here in my own website (part two-of my own website. I hope to have it done sometime soon-please bear with me while I'm in the process of finishing it.)You may view it at... the LINK here... LINK to NILP... for NILP info. In addition to NILP, I'm also involved with an organization called Lawrence Organizing Voices for Empowerment-the LOVE group. ...It's a SPINOFF of NILP, and it's purpose is to fight for the rights of mental health consumers in the state of Massachusetts. I've created a website for the LOVE group (actually the first one for the group was created and maintained by a fellow LOVE group member, but he ran into some technical difficulties and so took the website down off the 'net, and then I created a new website for the group.) --see his homepage... off you go... The LOVE group is a group of mental health consumers in the Merrimack Valley area of the Baystate fighting for the rights of ALL MENTAL HEALTH CONSUMERS/SURVIVORS/EX-PATIENTS in our state. you can find the (separate from this website) LOVE website by...
