If you like to listen to audio books, and you are blind or physically disabled you should check out the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
I am now reading The Appeal, which is written by John Grisham. It is about a company that is in the energy business. In a small Mississippi town, the company has dumped waste into their water supply and now everyone in the town is sick with cancer. This is a pretty good book, however not one of John Grisham's best. I got this book off of iTunes.

Something cool to do in Philadelphia is to go see the National Constitution Center. It allows you to see how our country was created and the history of our great country. The coolest part of the Constitution Center is the hall of statues, which is all of the statues of the signers of the Constitution. That is really cool! If you have not been to the Constitution Center you should definitely take the time to check it out. Everything there is totally wheelchair accessible, which is hard to find in the city.

Support the men and women of the military. Even though this war is a complete and total disaster, never get angry at the men and women of the Armed Forces. They are only doing their jobs to help all of us keep our freedom. If we did not have these special people we would not have the rights we take for granted. The cost of freedom does not come cheap! God bless you all and God bless America.
Today I went to work at the Hollydell School. It is a school for children with physical and mental disabilities. I started working there about three years ago. The kids are great and it is a lot of fun. Everyone there treats me so great. It is a privilege to have this opportunity.I know not many people with my disability have the chance to work at all. I am very blessed that God has given me this opportunity. I work with children from about seven years old to about 14. They are always smiling and happy to be going to school. I get the chance to work with Felix, Robert, Max, Evan, Cashmere, Charles, Brian and William. My prayers and thoughts are with William and his family. I also got to meet my best friend Matt at the school. So this is an experience that I cherish and will continue working there while I am able to do so .I also miss the older kids across the street. I will get back there once the weather gets better. With the cold weather my fingers get cold and I'm unable to drive the joystick on my wheelchair.

Forrest Gump is my favorite movie of all-time. It shows even though some people are different, you should always treat them with dignity and respect. Do onto others as they do onto you.

"stupid is as stupid does"

"life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get"

"they gave you the congressional medal of honor"

"I just felt like running"

"it happens"

"run Forest"

I went on a trip to Orlando, Florida one summer and we stopped in Savanna, Georgia. There they filmed the scenes on the bench in the movie. I actually saw the exact bench.
