The United Nations was formed for Development, Human Rights, Peace and Security for all people aroundthe world.  One of the goals of the UN is to "Leave no one behind."  This is their goal for 2030 and to take the needed steps forward they have enacted the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. 

Each year on December 3rd the UN observes IDPD and has set as the theme for 2018:  "Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality."
The UN's goals are great! No one should be left behind and a day for persons with Disabilities is encouraging.  Every December 3rd we can reflect on what we have done and what we could do.  The theme for this year of Empowering, Inclusiveness, and Equality for those who have disabilities should bring attention to the problems those with disabilities go through.
People with and without a disability are the same, we just have different obstacles to deal with which means we should all help each other as equals and friends.
We are all on this planet together and we all should try and get along together.  Look for commonalities between all the people you come into contact with and maybe the UN's goal will be met.

 We Must Find The Time To Stop And Thank The People Who Make A Difference In Our Lives.
...................................................................................by John F. Kennedy

Remember to think of others and go the extra step of saying and showing you appreciate them. Thinking of and acknowledging how even those who did little things for you during the year, is a big deal, and can make the world a better place.

Appreciation is a big word and should not be taken lightly. How many times we take things for granted, especially little things. A simple thank you to a co-worker or friend can make someone's day and turn a frown into a smile.

Just remember, the little things matter just as much as the big things, and with that, Thank you for reading this post.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

By: Helen Keller

This quote rings as true for life as it does for the work environment. Optimism, faith, hope and confidence are great for building a great work attitude. Remember, no one will believe in you unless you believe in yourself first. Believe in yourself and get others on board, while trying new things, old things, and learning life lessons along the way. This will all lead to achievements that no one, not even you, thought possible.

"Our greatest glory consists not in never falling,
 but in the rising every time we may fall."

           -- O. Goldsmith

If you don't try you will never succeed. Some of the greatest people have failed many times, but have continued to try. The more you try the more likely you are to fail, but this is not failure. Failure is in not trying something else.
Some people are not sure what they want out of life or what they want to do with their life. If you continue to try you will find many answers and gain strength with every downturn and success in life. And yes, you can have multiple things go right in your life, but you must try.

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the
soul and sings the tune without the words, and
never stops at all....." 

                Emily Dickinson  (1830-1886)


Hope, we don't think about it much, but where would we be without hope when things in life overwhelm us or we are going through a tough time. It is hope for a better future that can keep us trying and give our lives meaning until we finally succeed.
Without hope what would we have? No one's life is perfect and everyone needs hope to keep us above water. With hope and effort comes success and a better future.

Thank you for your editorial relating to legislation for people with disabilities.
It provides much needed information on recent and proposed legislation affecting disabled individuals.
It gives insight into the complexities of legislation.
It helps one find a way through what often seems to be a hopeless maze.
It enables disabled individuals and/or their families to use their limited time and energies in a more efficient and effective way in their effort to improve the quality of their lives.
