We have a great opportunity!
The Office of Disability Concerns met a great young man on an incredible journey. Though all of us are on a life journey, Frank has experienced a few bumps and pot holes on his road. As we were talking, he related very thoughtful observations based on his introspection.
Frank agreed to share his thoughts and experiences about this journey. Frank has agreed to “pod” his “getting back to work” experience. Frank is a young man who has had a long recovery from a permanent health condition. His condition shattered his life as he knew it, and he has had to build determination, build understanding, and build his own opportunities.
Frank knows that he may not be a model of inspiration, but we all agree that his frank and honest assessment from “someone who done it” would be invaluable to anyone else starting on this journey
Frank is recording his experience from when he decided it was time to go back to work, finding a job, getting a job and finally keeping a job. These are his thoughts, prayers hopes and dreams.
It gives all of us an insight on what it takes to go and get a job and go to work. Frank is not doing this to build admirers or glorify himself, he clearly states that his disability doesn’t define him, but it is part of him. He wants his story to be a help to others, maybe even a lesson.
Join us and follow his journey, we all hope that it turns out for the best, but since this is nearly real time, the ending has not been written.
Rock on Frank, Rock on….
