Talking the walk and walking the walk

My goodness and I cannot believe that it is the final weekend of May and a
Memorial Day holiday weekend for our neighbours to the South.
We wish you a pleasant weekend.
For this week I am pleased to share our president’s editorial with you and
today Donna J. Jodhan focuses her attention on walking the walk; let’s do
less of talking the walk!
Happy Memorial Day weekend from all of us!
I’m Scott Savoy


Talking the walk and walking the walk
By Donna J. Jodhan

I humbly submit that too often we have folks who talk the walk but somehow
they get lost along the way when it comes to walking the walk. So what do I
mean today?

Simple! We seem to have too many folks who love to preach but often fail to
practise what they preach. For me; this is one of my most passionate
principles! I always do the best that I can to walk the walk! To practise
what I preach! For if I cannot or do not; I would be a hypocrite and a
dismal failing example to the kids of the future.

What good would it be for me if I were to keep telling our future leaders
that they need to respect themselves and their knowledge and expertise?
That they need to demand appropriate compensation for the services that they
render? That they must focus on such things as demanding nothing less than
equal pay for their knowledge and expertise? That they must demand the same
treatment that sighted and mainstream folks receive? Most important; that
they must stop giving away their daily living for nothing!

Finally and finally I have found a way to live with my conscience. A few
weeks ago I walked away from a certain Federal Government department’s
advisory group. This after I had voluntarily given away too many years of
my daily living. I finally did it! I finally pulled up the boots by the
strap and took that huge step to walk the walk!

I cannot tell you how good this felt! Total relief! I finally did it for
the kids of the future and now I can smile as I set about to leave some sort
of a legacy for them!

Just my two cents for today.
