    Courtney makes valid point about NOT identifying people by their disability, and giving grace for the challenges that every person has, which are different for each of us.

    This doesn't play completely...sorry about the comment. I added it to the incorrect webinar. The one I was referring to was the Bullying webinar. It was great!
