So needed...

...having two 'differently-abled' brothers myself, I am such a proponent for community-inclusive opportunities. Well, I would be even if I didn't have my brothers. I hope and pray that someone very capable and compassionate responds to this plea.

Everyone has a voice, even if it can not be heard.

Let us Hope together-
