Signs that the Wall is Coming Down

heye all

as we approach the new year, its a good time to look back and reflect on what has come to pass

we remember our collective history to better see where we are standing, where we have been and where we are going

the good news below

– big hand waves to all for some of these most significant recent victories  – feel free to add more in comments or email me or do vlogs of ur own 1,001 victories etc (See Dr. Ladd re: 1,001 victories)

1. ICED 2010 Vancouver declared that the ICED Milan 1880 resolutions were WRONG and UNJUST and should not be repeated
2. Bell dorm name and plaque at NTID came down cuz it was dishonorable to be honoring Bell at a Deaf college
3. corporate deviance and faulty products are not cool – see FDA fine of Advanced Bionics and the latest recall and see Dept of Justice fine of Cochlear Americas
4. AVT is NOT proven to be RELIABLY EFFECTIVE and VIOLATES the ICED 2010 Vancouver New Era Agreement
5. Deaf and Hearing folks are not tolerating AG Bell Associations disrespect towards Deaf ASL folks – see NAD, DBC, AFA and AG Bell’s own members OBJECTION to AG Bell’s Pepsi letter
6. AB 2072 was vetoed by CA Governor
7. the practice of Eugenics is being examined and challenged
8. the practice of Audism is being recognized and analyzed and challenged
9. the practice of Linguicism is being understood and identified and challenged
10. Deafhood is CREATING creative works and actions that show a one for all, all for one approach.
Folks are on the move – time to get out and about folks
While the glass is still mostly full in the dominating forces favor – soul force / truth force (see Gandhi) is on the raise and we be getting folks to share a bit of a measure of what is in their cup – this is Equality of Condition folks – this is what Sojourner Truth spoke of in her Ain’t I a Woman speech
Forward march and be happy – it is hard work but it is just right and good – love love love
all we need is love and our feet firmly on the ground as we jump at da sun

everybody 1 … 2 … 3…. jump
and know i love you

“No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” (ML King Jr “I have a dream” speech 1963)

    Aw Don – i understand but really we r just getting started

    try walking an hour to work in the hot sun or the pouring ran for 1 year just so u can sit anywhere u want on a bus

    that is dedication

    that is commitment

    that is perserverance

    that is determination

    try facing the KKK

    try being beaten up and having dogs attack u and folks call u racists slurs and spit in ur face

    the progress we are seeing is real and hope is a moral obligation (tony kusner)

    don’t ask, dont tell is about to be overturned

    there is no federal ban on gay/lesbian marriage despite’s bush, jr promise to make one

    yep things are NOT perfect but they are getting better why?
    cuz folks are standing up peacefully and truthfully and lovefully

    wanna join?

    i hope u will

    the bear necessities of life will come to u

    no raining on the parade – unless u wanna forever be in ur boots

    for me tonight – i be bare foot

    much peace
