A holiday greeting: sharing and caring

Sharing is caring. That phrase can be best applied to the services of Easter Seals, especially through the holiday season. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, we have six weeks of 2007 left to cherish the good memories.

I have many things that I am thankful for this year. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my family: my mother, father and sister. We, the Snell family, would like to give thanks to the people of Easter Seals for opening their doors to us. I know the Easter Seals doors will always be open, no matter what next step I choose to take in life.

I have battled through the 24 years of my life and I have won the battle. I have beaten the odds and became a new man, both a high school and college graduate, and finally, being employed by the Easter Seals organization.

All these things, I am thankful for.

I am thankful for having claimed the prestigious position of being Easter Seals 2007 National Adult Representative. Being the Adult Representative has given me new ways to express myself to the nation, along with meeting new people who share a common bond: stepping up to make a difference in today’s society.

That difference will change the lives of many people with disabilities across the country.

I was fortunate to have met the Boyles family, the Odens family, the Owens family, the Gaither family, along with many more. I am proud to have made a difference and impact people’s lives by visiting many places, especially places I even dreamed of going to.

Happy holidays and a great 2008 to the people at Easter Seals!
