I HAD A DREAM
M.L.K. is the master of advocacy a advocacy that changes hearts and minds knowing it takes generations of advocacy and hard work he began a journey that was not popular in the minds of those who stood to lose the most and those they influenced. It was a fight started a hundred years before him and will be going on a hundred years after. But the king taught man to stand up for what they believe, to not accept how things are. He as well paid the ultimate price for his believes. Until Dr. King we humans did not know what it was to stand up for something greater than ourselves To stand up to change what people think and how they treat another person. We will Honor Dr. King and talk about his history as it relates to our future.
So many of us who are living in the aftermath of a brain injury understand this. And as people, our communities and society in general are largely clueless what brain injury means. Hell it takes us survivors who live with it everyday years to even begin to understand. We asking people to understand and accept something they cannot see. And in many cases something we can’t explain or cope with. And most of the time by the time we can begin to explain or understand it, there is no one left to share it with. And like most movements those who feel so deeply and step up to bring change will never see the change in people’s hearts and minds. You can have all the laws and acts and everything else but none of it means a thing until it is in people’s hearts and minds.
How do we change hearts and minds, how do we find each other. Reach out find someone don’t be alone, then together find others. Find that voice that we have in common and change the world.
March is brain injury awareness month, there are so many stories, so many successes that survivors have had. Let us share some of those stories tonight. Kind of an open mic night about brain injury stories. Your story could be the story that helps someone through their challenges and hard times so please share your story tonight

Holidays are a hard time for many survivors, alot of the survivors I have met have lost most of their relationships, careers, homes and any real connection to a community. So the season being a time were people focus on memories of the past it can be a realy hard thing. And not always is the the most recent that struggles the most. What realy seems to be a difficult situation is not the loss but our hardened selfs that close the world out to ourselves.
We create this cycle of hell, and the holidays seem to be the center of it all to many. I like many just struggle to make it through this time of year. We have to shed our losses, and it everyones fault ours included but the new us, the new me have to find a way to feel the glow of life beeming through our bodies. We may have hard momments, days or weeks but keep trying to see the ray of hope, its all we have never lose faith.

Prisoner of my mind – Hosted by Craig Sicilia & Cheyrl Green
Sometimes living with brain injury means living with what we think is the worse of who we are. Between the disbelieve of the people who are in our lives that we are not ok, that not all is as it appears, we look fine and like who we were but were not. And what’s worse we don’t even know who we are. That is the quest to discover who we are but with the pain and of our losses and lack of support. The journey is hard but with faith, hope and effort we can live a life more fulfilling than the one we had before our brain injury. Let’s talk about that journey
March is brain injury awareness month, let us share our stories tonight and we can share them with everyone, will post the link of our sharing everywhere. The struggle of self-discovery is one of lots of extreme hardship and no-one understands. They don’t understand because of many reasons but one that stands out is they cannot see our invisible disability, and people have a hard time believing what they cannot see. And our struggles sound like excuses to those who can’t relate or right after one of our struggles. Let us share and help make people understand the best that they can and the best that we can as we describe the journey of discovery for a survivor and their families. Let us make brain injury awareness about those living with brain injury.
