Our local CBC website has been running a series on disabilities and accessibility in Manitoba. By some strange coincidence, I had submitted an opinion piece on the issue as they were organizing the series behind the scenes. I feel proud to have my piece included:
Let's get serious about making Winnipeg public schools more accessible
This is so important. I wrote this for every kid who has broken a leg (I have) or had any sort of disability, short or long term, that makes gaining access to school difficult. I feel so lucky to have had a place to submit this essay, because, well, we all deserve equal access to education, no matter how we get there.
On a lighter note: Thanks to all who have taken part in my February sale opportunity on Ravelry! Knitting (and dreaming of new projects) is a great way to get through a cold, cloudy, and long February. I sure would like to kick my cough and get to enjoying knitting (and everything else) again. Viruses, be gone! :)
