Good morning Tom Boland,

A truth, be it one that deserves an upper case or a lower case "T" don't
need permission to be used. Tom the use of that little slogan justifies
us both. And the truth contained in it will if spoken enough (I hope)
keep us both free. Heck get a big rubber-stamp and tag everything that
has a flat surface.

I did forward that note with "nothing about us, without us" tag on to
some other folks, not for the disapproval or review of those other folks,
but out of joy that those words have taken on a life of their own. Some
folks labored their whole life on disability civil rights issues--rarely
did the first generations get the validation you gave me. Thank you.

If it is a benediction you need, please Mr Boland go forth and multiply
that message!
