Pictures and A Petition

From mom: Some pictures I received in my email.

I think this is the group going from the San Jose airport to the hostel.

This is one of the group leaders, herself an MIUSA alumna, having fun with the group.

David and one of the ASL interpreters - I believe they are entering Hostel Bekuo.

David also requests a link to the FRIDA petition to ask the American Medical Association to set up a Disability Advisory Committee. He hopes you'll sign the petition, so that the voices of those with disabilities can be formally heard by the medical profession.

And, for those in the Chicago area, David hopes you'll participate in the rally sponsored by FRIDA, Not Dead Yet and ADAPT to encourage the AMA to set up the Disability Advisory Committee. Here are the details:

Where: Chicago Hilton, 720 S. Michigan
When: Sunday, June 24, 2007
Time: 11:30 am to 3:30 pm

Gee, I wonder how "Mom" is doing with all those mixed emotions swirling around in her head?!

Thanks for showing the photos. I look forward to more!
