Journalist Judy Woodruff jumps into the new PBS NewsHour blog, “The Rundown,” listing some topics she’s eager to talk about. Among her top five: Disability. An excerpt:
Our older son has serious physical disabilities that have opened our entire family’s eyes to the plight of those who wake up each day with the equivalent of a mountain to climb, simply to get ready for the day. As advanced as our nation is, we have a very long way to go to even the playing field, much less give them the opportunities they deserve, to be the contributing members of society they want to be. I am always on the lookout for stories and developments that relate to their lives.
