The Houston Abilities Expo will be held at the NRG
Center July 31, and August 1, 2. I will be signing my
books there. The Expo features a fantastic array of
assistive equipment and services. It also features the
physical and creative abilities of people with disabilities.
2015 also marks the 25th anniversary of the ADA,
Americans with Disability Act. Those with disabilities
are still a long way from equal opportunity when it
comes to independence, housing, and employment.
Ability to breathe,
ability to drink,
ability to eat,
and to think.
Ability to see,
ability to hear,
ability to talk,
and to face fear.
Ability to walk,
ability to run,
ability to go out,
into the sun.
Ability to read,
ability to write,
ability to be heard,
and fight the good fight.
Ability to earn,
ability to own,
ability to lead,
and to roam.
Ability to love,
ability to care,
ability to know,
that someone is there.
Ability to reason,
ability to survive,
ability to believe,
and just be alive.

|Ron, you are the finest ambassador I can imagine for disabled Americans. Accomplishments aside it is your Joie de virve that is so infectious and impressive. You have dealt with each physical challenge as an opportunity to improve and excel and have succeeded. As a friend I am always proud and amazed with your accomplishments. May love and peace be always with you my friend. Jon Michael|

|Having progressed quite far in your autobiography, 'Hanging by a Thread,' I know you possess many of these abilities--the ones that really count!
Wishing you a very successful book signing. I, for one, highly endorse your book.
