Family, family, family, I have been wondering if and how to respond to some of the messages from yesterday and I feel compelled to say this simply and as heartfelt as I can.

We are all in this together and I don't want people to now leave or consider leaving the list or even the affiliate because we need you believe me!

Yes families fight sometime but there is a way to do it and a time and place for it.

So let's all just learn from this and use it to make it and even better space and place for us to effectively communicate with one another please?

We all want the same things and the bottom line is that we all want this to be the most effective and lifechanging affiliate possible so that we can help all those other blind and visually impaired people that are looking for us even if they don't know it yet.

So I recommend that we take a deep breath, look around us and see just how Blessed we are this Holiday season and do what we can to learn from our recent discussions and hit the year ready to do what we can to make life better for all blind and visually impaired people in Ohio and beyond.

Can I get a witbness?
