Last week was a hectic one; I'll explain why.
As some of you know, Kees (my husband), has CP (Cerebral Palsy) what was called 'spastic' earlier.
Sometimes when he is walking outside children or adults call him nasty names or deride him. With help of an organization for disabled people (if you translate this, it is something like 'Netherlands unlimited'), Kees went to a school nearby to tell a class of children (about 11 years old) what it is to live with a handicap like this.
There were also people from two TV stations (one national and the other one regional) that did interviews with him and filmed him in school and at home.
This all happened on Thursday, but also Friday was filled with reactions from lots of people known and unknown. Those reactions were heartwarming and something to be remembered.
This is a photo of Kees in the class
and this is a link to an article on the website of the regional TV station. Of course it is in Dutch, so hard to understand for most of you. If you want, Google Translate will give you some idea.
No need to tell you how proud I am that he did this. Not just for himself but for all people 'different'!
As Kees said "We have moved a stone in a river on earth" (translated from a Dutch song).
So, and now to the challenge of this week: String Theory - Stripes!
I like this challenge and worked on it with a real zen feeling. Decided to leave the stripe in the center open and after finishing I think that was the right thing to do.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.
