Do most people perceive disabled persons as beautiful and productive? Ask Dr. Applewhite. People with visible and non-visible physical disabilities are reminded constantly by advertisements that able-bodied persons are beautiful, productive, and successful. However, most people hold the perception that a physically or mentally disabled person is just the opposite. Supermodel Beverly Johnson, Spokesperson for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation 2014 and recipient of the Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award, is our Special Guest and will share a unique perspective of how perceptions of beauty and disability can be changed. Host Dr. Danita Applewhite, Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor and Educator, encourages fellow Veterans, students, and employees with Disability to change their self-perceptions and images to enhance education and workforce success.

What to do about the illegals! This is the biggest question facing this nation - that big bad storm called Hurricane Patricia is drawing our attention to this big big problem. Natural disasters are the inevitable result of winds of change. I am going to propose some changes that could be solutions to the problems of the illegals. Also, let's look at the welfare disability programs in this country. Do these programs really help or do they perpetuate a situation that needs to change?

SPECIAL EDITION - THE latenight GRIPE SHOW
So you say you have a disability, yeah me too! All I can say is so what, sure it sucks and lots of things are not fair. We still must live life. It comes down to what we are going to do with our life. I have spent years bumbling around since I acquired my brain injury. I did everything out of order, I got some of the worst help you could imagine. By the time I understood what was happening my whole life was gone. Almost everyone I ever loved was gone. My life was in ashes.
But again so what. All I can do is kick my own ass for my part in this. But now I am ready to live a life that I value. One that fits what I want. Ready to open myself up for those relationships that make life worth living. Do the things that my heart tells me. It is going to be different than before because I am a different person. But you know what it is going to be better, I am going to love deeper, care more and laugh harder. Everything I have been through living with my disability is part of what makes me great.
Join in tonight gripe away maybe some tough love thoughts can help you, maybe not but at least we can share, complain our heart out and have a good laugh doing it. YOU KNOW YOU WANNA JOIN SO DO
