Hi Genda, my FB friend! This is amazing! It doesn’t only open a new world to you, but also to your readers! You are standing as an example and a light house in blogsphere on how we can share and explore and take part of others life, culture and traditions wherever we come from, whatever we believe in and whoever we are. My sayings are ‘Bloggging connecting people so make blogs not wars’. You really show that blogging empowering people! I wish you good luck in the contest and say: keep up the good work:-)

This is fantastic and wonderful to see the empowerment that you are sharing with the world. Know that by showing this, you will be an inspiration to others who “think” they can’t do it and it will hopefully encourage them to know that they CAN! You are an inspiration to so many people and I wish you all the best in all your endeavors! Keep up your empowerment and keep sharing it with others! Congrads to you and your hubby for this video-great idea!

What a fabulous video — it does such a good job of making your story “real” to the more visual folks in the world. Your book has been such an inspiration to me. Thanks for all you’re doing to make the world a better place for everybody, not just people with disabilities.

Blessed for the computer and advanced technologies .. There is a guy I know who has a severe CP — uses his feet to type! Luckily he speaks clearly well. CP can do anything! I have a few Deaf friends with a mild and moderate CP around here. Thanks for sharing this with me and the rest of the world.
