Hi Nora and Tom!
I have now had the opportunity to watch this fantastic film in full! Wow. Wow. Wow. I am so proud of Tom and Nora and all those involved. I am trying to forward to all I know . God bless all of you for your work.
This film needs to go far. Perhaps getting it into local venues across the country.
THINK+change/The Arc of Aurora is proud to sponsor this important film in support of the pursuit of justice for people with disabilities. #awesome
I just finished watching this. Free will and choice is the number 1 value of my 4 point personal value system (loving kindness, inclusion, communication being the others) so this had quite an impact on me:
1. I have not had to deal with guardianship directly but I was a rehab counselor for several years working with clients in a sheltered workshop many of whom were developmentally disabled, and of course I had to deal with elder care issues within my family.
2. I never knew that someone's rights could be so infringed upon to include being removed from a guardian situation.
3. That in Michael's case his rights could be infringed upon and he is well spoken and thoughtful.
Pretty scary and pretty backwards. So many kudos to you and team for your pursuits which ultimately impact all of us.
I think this is a good film and very much needed as a public service for those who are currently in a negative situation and for those of us who may encounter a similar situation in the future and God forbid please!
I am glad that you all are advocating for solutions. There are solutions to all of this if only we would be willing to be hear.
So in summary based upon what I see in this film: this country has issues in conservatorship that include:
I also see a need to provide education and support to family members and others who have the responsibility for those impacted.
I just finished watching the Pursuit of Justice!
I am so proud of you and Tom — and Michael Liguori and everyone in the film. I loved it and think we need to find a way to get everyone to absorb this, to see it, to fight for the rights of all these people..
This film was so filled with dedication and compassion and — oh, what I admire most about you — sweet loving determined resolve to improve things. This is part of who you are — and part of why I care so much about you. And now I see why you love Tom so much too.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Mazel Tov!!! I'm forwarding it and have posted on FB! I'm so proud of you, Nora and Greg, and humbled to have been a part of it.
I'll never forget sitting in that conference room, watching DRLC and others completely dismissing you and the issue, and writing you the note with the DOJ contact info to file the complaint.
Thanks for bringing me along for the ride. You are both heroes to our community, but especially to me!
Bravo! And many thanks for creating and offering this wonderful resource to the world. It has been needed for a long time. Your approach to these issues is accessible, informative and entertaining--not an easy combination to pull off. Well done.
THANK YOU TOM FOR SHARING YOUR WORK, RESULTS AND CHALLENGES WITH US.
WE REALLY APPRECIATE WHAT YOU DO AND FOR SURE MANY OTHERS WILL FIND A WAY TO A BETTER LIFE BECAUSE OF THE CHANGES AND NEW LAWS YOU PROMOTE.
THANK YOU AGAIN.
Dear Tom and Film Contributors,
Well done, I would like to present this film to the young people with disabilities at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, and to my local Senior Centers in my workshop plans this Spring.
I am wondering about people who do not have the ability to sit long periods, or concentrate long periods, and would like to adapt a power point, so that I can break up the viewing into digestible segments. Have you considered this or would you be able to make such an accommodation in the future?
I have short blocks of time to work on projects and am looking to find those projects, I'll bet you have some ideas or resources, and would love your input. I am willing to travel.
Thank you so much for your dedicated hard work.
Happy New Year, I can see a brighter future here.
