Thought for the Day: Here are my #FF Friday's Fabulous Finds. There is a story by
Lisa Belkin about how a mother of a special needs child made sense of her intricate tasks & the support network she had to understand & utilize. See how she used her discovery to help others. The second find is about a new creative program that the Obama administration is launching to keep people involved in being the change they wish to see in their communities. Finally, there is an article by Mark E, Ruquet proposing that gun owners be required to have liability insurance for every gun they own, just like car insurance. I'd love to hear your thoughts & hope you enjoy these finds! Have a great weekend!
1) This article includes an intricate multi-colored map of a special needs child’s support system. It demonstrates how difficult it is to raise one special needs child. It shows how one mother, Cristin Lind, “learned about herself. Seeing the 70 colored ovals, each representing an area of care she (the mother of a special needs child) was expected to understand and coordinate, helped her see her life with new clarity. “No wonder we had so many piles of unfolded laundry,” she jokes.”
2) I was pleased to see the new initiative, Organizing for Action, as a way to keep the momentum of the Obama campaign working to develop local groups working for change across the United States. Take a look at the video by Jon Carson which explains how this new initiative will work.
3) Here’s a great idea from By Mark E. Ruquet, PropertyCasualty360.com: liability insurance for gun owners. Just as drivers need to have insurance to drive a car, gun owners would be mandated to have liability insurance for every weapon that they purchase.http://www.propertycasualty360.com/2013/01/21/mass-bill-seeks-liability-insurance-for-gun-owners?t=es-specialty&utm_source=PC360DailyeNews&utm_medium=eNL&utm_campaign=PC360_eNLs
