    Excellent! Well Done!!

    It's a challenge to tell a complicated story in about 35 minutes, and you accomplished that objective very well. You covered several important issues ~ the professor's trauma, the students' concern and trauma, the recovery, acceptance, making amends, the availability of accommodations for persons with disabilities, Ava's frustration, the professor's frustration, the hope in faith, the power of prayer ...

    And now we discover that you are an actor! Awesome!!!

    You did great, my friend! Bravo!

    Love & Light,

    Mom to Jon, 48, (seizure disorder; Gtube; trache; colostomy; osteoporosis; hypothyroid; enlarged prostate; lymphedema, assorted mysteries) and Michael, 32, (intractable seizures; Gtube), who were born with an undiagnosed progressive neuromuscular disease and courageous spirits. Our Angel Michael received his wings in 2003 and now resides in Heaven. Our Angel Jon lives at home with me and Jim, the world's most wonderful dad.
