A side of inspiration



For lunch today, I had eggplant parm, some salad, pineapple and a side of inspiration. Yep, you heard me. I attended a luncheon put on by Friendship Circle, where we got to hear from Randy Lewis, Senior VP of logistics and distribution for Walgreens. He's implemented an amazing program providing jobs to people with disabilities. He is such a dynamic speaker and he truly believes in his mission. As a parent of a 21 year old son with Autism, he gets it. 

Hands down, his best line of the day was "Why is it so important to work to create jobs for adults with disabilities? We're always talking about children with special needs, but people are adults for a whole lot longer than they are children"
