Hope Crosses the Political Divide

No post from me today.

But I would like to direct you to "Equal not Special", reporting on a small but potentially hopefull step towards improving disability services in Australia. It's important news, and I can't put it better than that. And while you're there, check out the site. Good eh?

On 17 March 2008 at around 8:30pm the Australian Federal Parliament secured bipartisan support from members of the two major political parties (Australian Labor Party and Australian Liberal Party) to support a motion by the Member for Gilmore, Mrs Joanna Gash, to improve the services, support and care for Australians with disabilities and their families/carers. <more>

Here's to a better future...
