Keep telling those stories

July 26, 2009

Aaron and I have been travelling the province doing workshops on building personal support networks for and with people who have developmental disabilities.  Everywhere we go, we meet people who are doing incredible things to facilitate relationships.  Often they don’t seem to realize what they’re doing is all that significant; many young people (am I sounding old or what?) are surprised to learn that our communities haven’t always been so accepting, and that other parts of our country and our world still aren’t.

We have much to be proud of here in B.C., and the more we dig into this topic the stronger our conviction that we are indeed leaders in this work.  101 Stories of Friendship from Across BC would be an obvious choice for a next book…

But honestly, nobody tells your story better than YOU.  If you or someone you know is doing something fun or interesting or different to expand or deepen one’s relationships, write it down!  Share your story…inspire others.  Send your story to your local paper, post it on facebook, send it to us and we’ll share it with our readers.
