Louisiana Supported Living Network – Sept. 2007

Our strength is not in the political influence that money can buy. Our strength is in knowledge & numbers.

Our knowledge comes from our relationships with people that society still tends to see as power- less & unable to contribute. We know better because we have care-filled, thoughtful connections with people through everyday activities. What we know grows as we share more of our lives & take time to reflect on the lessons we are learning with people.

The power of our numbers shows when we rally for what we know is right.
