The CRPD and an Idea

 As I mentioned in a previous blog, Senator Tom Harkin from Iowa is asking people to send stories about what the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the CRPD, means to them. If you visit Senator Harkin's website -- -- and look at the CRPD option at the top on the right side, click on it, you can share your story.

Well, I have an idea that would complement and bring power to Senator Harkin's strategy. Let's compile in one place like, all the pictures floating around about the CRPD. The idea came to me after a friend sent me something from YouTube. Details are below.

 Seventeen  year old Joe Bush got a high school assignment to make a video
 reproduction. He  chose history as a theme and tucked it all into two minutes.Take pictures from the internet, add the track Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey
 (from the movie Interception) and then you get --

Joe's collection of photos makes the case for peace, clean air, "we are all this together" mind set, and the CRPD without saying a word.

Maybe we could ask Joe to help us make a video collage for YouTube.

Thank you.
