Our newspaper ran a story about a local center for the developmentally disabled. Fifteen staff members were going to lose their jobs and the center was soon to be closed because of a lack of state funding. I read the newspaper story and felt a tight grip in my chest. Two weeks ago, before I read the book, I would have skipped past the story without considering the serious implications.
I was persuaded to look inside my own and that is the reason I'm sharing this with you today.
