And here’s what you might have missed last week

 Quote of the Week suggested and shared by Cynthia Gilchrist:

“Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals.” - Dorothy Height

 Right of the week by Marilyn Stata, DDSO Rights Advocate:

The right that we are talking about today Right to work This is an important right everyone has a choice of what type of work they would like to do. Whether its a paycheck or volunteer or a day program. This is very important for everyone.

 Book reading: Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone

Susan read out loud from chapter 10 and part of chapter 11, leaving off just as Harry is to step foot on the Quidditch field for his first Quidditch match.(Harry is excited but also hopes no one can see his knees knocking).

 Invite your friends and see you all next week, if not before.

Friday's Open Mic theme and song:

Matthew Maclean song suggestion: "We Are The World", written by Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson

 "I thought that "We Are the World" the 1980's version would be a great song to share because it talks about uniting the world for a cause, in the song case was to end the famine in Africa, but this song sends a strong message that we need to unite to make this world a better world." - Matt Maclean  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AjkUyX0rVw

 Laverne Scott helped lead the closing song

 Self-advocates Speak Up in Legislative Sessions and Rallies
