Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
And to the republic for which it stands
One Nation under God
With Liberty and Justice for ALL
All means everyone even those with disabilities. What happens when people forget
Let me tell you a story. Lets say that you are 13 years old but instead of hanging out at the mall and middle school drama you spend your days in a facility because you are hard to handle. One day on a field trip someone with authority sits on you until you die. You are in a van but the driver does not get medical care for you.
Seems like the victim was kidnapped right
wait you are in a care facially why
As a person with behavior issues and disabilities my heart really
breaks for this little boy. I hope there are not other
people in America like John but the sad fact is that there are
most likely others. I love being a American there are lots of
benefits from living here but I am not happy with the story.
Does anyone have any ideas how we can fix the problem?

this post is a vent u have been warned
Even though I am 19 years old and the eldest sister. I feel like I am nine and have two older sisters. The worst part is that I am done with high school but never went to a house party or a school dance.
Things are different for my two sisters. Book gal and Princess are known to be out of the house a lot. They have lots of friends that they hang out with and I am stuck at home. I am soo bored and the Wii and internet only helps to a extent. I am soo lonely . I do not know why this should bother me because I have been lonely for a while now however it does.

What can parents of typical teenagers do to help people like me out is to encourage that they call up others with disabilities there same age to hang out with. I know i am difficult to hang out with but if I lack practice of being around peers I will never learn. Just because I am disabled does not mean that I do not have the same diseres as other teenagers do. i want to go out of the house without my parents and have a good time. I want to have a fun summer getaway. I want something to do. Will all the things typical teenagers do be right for me no but allot of them will. For example I can not go to to a 18 and under club but I would like to go bowling or go to the theaters to see Harry Potter at midnight. I may not want to go to a horror film but i would enjoy horseback riding or a amusement park. What I would love is if someone invited me to do something and even if it was not something I wanted to do It would be a step in the right direction. People with disabilities just want to have fun

hay guys so I have not been blogging for a while so here is whats up
1 My sister , book gal, is graduating from high school and will be moving to Boston. The ceremony is tomorrow and we have a house party on Saturday.
2 Princess is a senior . She took the SAT's on Saturday. I felt kinda bad for her because her first week of summer break was spent taking a SAT prep course. The same one I took but never used i now to go CC sigh
3 I got a job at a basketball camp. Note it is not a special needs basketball camp, A regular basketball camp. My mom tried to get me connected to a job coach for adults with disabilities but I wanted to get the job on my terms. I was a camper at this camp in middle school and loved it. Their philosophy is to teach campers how to be better people using sport as a vehicle. ( sounds familiar right think Special Olympics ) One of my memories of camp is having to ask to go to snack using magic words and lots of high fives ( again special Olympics) I am supper excited. I will be blogging about it as I get more info on it ,
4 My mom had a birthday yesterday Happy b day mom
5 My dad's mom is here for the graduation tomorrow this is really cool as she is in Texas and we do not see her that often. Yesterday My parents grandma and I went to see X Men great movie more info about that soon
