Here's a great video montage about the National Inclusion Project;

--------Why Inclusion Is Important--------------
This is an entry for a devotional for the church where my Mom and I are members, Burks United Methodist It was written by my Sunday school teacher who left a job with TVA to teach. It shows the importance of inclusion and awareness for children and adults;

If I had been in that teacher's class, I wouldn't get a star. I have mild Cerebral Palsy and cannot tie a "proper" bow, but I tie it the best way for me-and sometimes ask for help and I'm 41 :).

--------A Local Inclusion Event--------------
A local children's museum, the Creative Discovery Museum, is having a special event to show children what it's like to live with a disability in their "Kids Like You, Kids Like Me" Exhibit. It began on October 10th & ends on November 8th. Please check the museum's web page in the link above for more info. If you are in the Chattanooga area or live nearby, please come see this exhibit(Note: Adults can only enter the museum if they bring a child with them). "Kids Like You, Kids Like Me" is sponsored by the Siskin Children's Institute & Unum Provident

In Loving Tribute to Joseph Alvis Aiken: Clay's grandfather

Clay Aiken

Clay's Papa died yesterday. There is a tribute page for the elder Mr. Aiken on the Clay Aiken Official Fan Club

Who can forget the song that Clay dedicated to his Papa at American Idol, or the one he dedicated to him in one of his Christmas tours?

My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with Clay and all of his family.
