Blogging Against Disablism Day 2009

Today is Blogging Against Disablism Day 2009. I have committed to write a post about it, but I am still struggling with the topic. Throughout today and the weekend, I plan to check in with thoughts, links, etc.
Blogging Against Disablism Day, May 1st 2009
I'm still working up something new to post, but I have at least come to the realization that I may, in fact, be a person with disabilities. I've been dealing with depression my entire adult life, and I wrote an article on Helium about it. I realize this is supposed to be a day to write something new, but I'm offering this until I manage to do it.

Ani Performs "November 4, 2008"

She played this last night at the concert at the Trustees Theatre. One of a few times that I was just barely holding back tears. It was a terrific show. I just wish it had been promoted better. I hadn't heard about it until a week before, when I saw a Facebook Ad!
The opening act was Toshi Reagon, a fierce singer/songwriter who sang with her guitar only. I had a terrific time, and I was home just after midnight.

Blog for Choice Day 2009

The topic is: What is your top pro-choice hope for President Obama and/or the new Congress?
And the President just took a terrific first step toward my hope by affirming his commitment to defending Roe v. Wade.
There is more to be done, but if he stands by the statement he made today, we are well on our way. I want the global gag rule gone, a process that seems to have been started. I want a woman in South Dakota to have the same rights and bodily autonomy as a woman in Chicago. And I want both of those women to have the same rights and bodily autonomy as any man.
I hope to return to this post later. This is all I have time for now.

Relevant Trivia

The events of November 14, 1959 inspired what "non-fiction novel"?

Leave your answers in comments. Bonus points if you can tell me why it's relevant (this one is geared more toward Glynn County residents, where relevance is concerned). Google if you must, but where's the fun in that?
