Glimpse of the Future? I hope so!

I know this is everywhere on the internet right now, but it is such awesome news I can't help but say something about it!!

That is a link to the Pepsi commercial that will air on the Superbowl. I normally do not watch football, but this is making me want to watch!! I hope this is the beginning of a trend. In an age where we have diverse cultures running for president and a Superbowl commercial that includes ASL - I am inspired about our future. What would happen if the two combined in we had a Deaf president? I guess I should slow down and be grateful for the present.

Then there is the opposite that is still going on in the world : see . The good news is that this is getting publicity so maybe more companies will review their policies and there will be less of this going on. Karen, my prayers and thoughts are with you & I have stopped going to Steak'n'Shake! Good for you for speaking out!

You can keep up with the Steak'n'Shake story on Karen's blog mentioned on the news at

Oh cool! I must be behind on the news. I hadn't heard about it yet. Went to the link and watched the video clips. Way fun! Thanks for sharing.

I blogged about it too in my weekly gratitude post. My gratitude went to Karen Putz for having the courage to stand up and be counted in the face of withering criticism and pressure. Her story both inspired and pressed some deeply hidden buttons that I didn’t know existed!

Thanks for helping a fellow blogger spread the news - she’s my buddy too!
