Another Broadway Rundown

Times Square and theatre fuel Marcus’ busy brain like nothing else. He absorbs and reflects the energy and passion.

In fact, this last trip I marveled internally at how much he had to say in every conversation, never at a loss for words.

Let’s Talk and Share

Recently, Marcus and I spoke at an educational event held at UNO in Omaha, hosted by our local Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands. 

We shared advocacy videos and stories told about and with advocates, focused on the ideas and “voice” of self-advocates, and the power of good storytelling.

So great.
I will tell you, though, Marcus is not a fan. He feels that the sad music (minor chords, ya know) do not accurately portray the message of the film.
