Elizabeth and Oliver teamed up for a powerfully moving presentation to a classroom of fifth graders about the inherent rights and dignity of the disabled. Sharing stories from their lives with their beloved Sophie, mother and son together created a powerful service project that opens not just eyes, but hearts too. We need it desperately. I hope they will take this show on the road.
The photo of Elizabeth and her youngest is from her blog, A Moon Worn as if it Were a Shell, "where poetry, politics, disability and parenting intersect."
