Break Through Inc.
September 30, 2010

In 1978 I had a dream about helping people to knock down walls about their disability. I am very pleased this day to be able to travel and sit down with folks on a one-to-one basis and talk to them about my disability. Many times I find out they have a hidden disability and they talk about being made fun of and being misunderstood. After we get done they realize that they are not alone in that everybody has a "disability" and we must educate others not to prejudge. It has been my honor to be able to serve in this capacity as an educator to help the general public to realize that people with disabilities have gifts and talents. They are people first. My wife Dee and I thank all that read this and the many people that have supported us with Break Through Inc. for these past 32 years.
