Our planet is scarred and damaged, its life-systems threatened with collapse. We must shade and protect Earth with "leaves of language" arising from the depths of life. Modern civilization will be healthy only when the poetic spirit regains its rightful place.

This is a very meaningful citizen-to-citizen communication with Hiroshima bomb survivors, which made the two survivors happier in the end.

Disability groups – including the Reeve Foundation – are making a final push for Congress to protect access to the individually configured and customized wheelchairs necessary for people with paralysis to live healthy, independent lives.

The National Coalition for Assistive and Rehab Technology recently placed an ad in USA Today urging Congress to pass a bill to avert drastic cuts in payments for wheelchairs and other equipment. Many people with paralysis already face barriers to obtaining the right equipment – and the Medicare payment reductions scheduled for January 1, 2017 would make it more difficult.

The Reeve Foundation – along with the National MS Society, United Spinal, ALS Association, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and other disability groups – have been advocating for Congress to pass HR 3229. To let Congress know that you support preserving access to properly fitting, high quality wheelchairs, visit our Action Center.
