The main thing that diminishes my quality of life is the way some people think I need to have things in routines. Let’s say meals for example, I think people get stuck in their support like serving me the same old meal. I need to have lots of variety in my life just like the food choices need to be varied. Got inclusion? That applies to diversity in communities making room to move our plane of intelligence from plateaus to pinnacles of sharper intelligence.
It is because of inclusive environments that wretches like me have communication. The tipping point has come with people like me demanding proper support to be heard.
Let’s be positive in our leading the inclusion movement as the great leader Dr. King did in his day.
We also have dreams, more like yours than not.

Happy Holidays to my fans. It has been a remarkable year. The main thing is peace is coming to our World in the way of how people are communicating. When I hear that families have begun to have communication with their child it validates the work of our movie which has created a movement with a solid foundation. The tree of diversity must be rooted in respect to produce sweet language of intelligence. The maple syrup of my Vermont requires hard work and patience; the same is true for supported typing. Peaceful maple stand of trees is the sanctuary of Tracy. Walking quietly beside me is my dynamo who taps into my surely wordy communication. It is my wish that all people are blessed to have a dream team like mine. I love you Mom, Harvey, Rachel and Jeanette. World of peace is my holiday prayer. Happy New Year!

This is the introduction to the presentation Tracy gave at the ARC Conference in Virginia on August 12:
Finding my voice is the reason I am here today, in your presence. Prior to having my outlet of supported typing, I looked like a person lacking in self control. With the fine training of master trainers I found my voice, leading to living life the way I had imagined it might be with communication. Having communication means I now have the means of educating others in self advocacy. To have my community know I have gifts to share has changed the way I look at myself. I now feel intelligent and my self worth matches my inner voice of intelligence. Not having education that is appropriate further isolated me as a child. Inclusion is key to finding voice which is the path to finding purpose. My purpose in life was voraciously consuming my inner thoughts until it was freed by finding my voice through typing. Now I share my story to others to ensure inclusion in all schools. It is my mission to make certain that inclusion laws are established in the United States. Isolating by institutionalizing people must end. It is the right time in history to replace old discrimination with the presumption of competence.

I had my meditative walk on the Cross Vermont Trail this morning. It is the most peaceful place to think and write my blog. I have been hoping to find God in nature and I now have. The Buddhists believe that silence is communicating peace. I know my silence is more peaceful now that I have consistent people in my life. I hope the world understands the importance of presuming competence.
With consistent supports the thing that seemed daunting becomes possible. Peace becomes possible through having the proper communication. The most important thing new or stagnant supports can do is rethink your original thoughts about disability and find ways to look into our eyes to find the glimmer of intelligent thought shining like a beacon of hope, lighting the path for the children of tomorrow.
The kindness of those dynamic people is paramount to the success of the folks who have the every day challenges of discrimination we face together. The leaders do not exist; to be successful we must sprint together like friends, carrying the flame of change to the world one community at a time. Please join me on the “Wretches & Jabberers World Marathon” to bring peace and the presumption of competence to the world.
Thanksgiving peace and blessings to all.
