On Wednesday, Cindy and I took the train from our home to New York City. I was scheduled to be a guest on The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson on the Fox News Channel. Gretchen is a strong advocate for the arts and a national celebrity spokesperson for the March of Dimes.
She has always been an avid supporter of our work with individuals with disabilities. I was invited to talk about my work in the autism community and the importance of the arts in helping improve some of the skills they find challenging. You can watch the interview by clicking the image below.
At the beginning of the interview, she played a portion of my short documentary, Powerful Medicine: Simply Magic. The film was completed in July and premiered in Portugal at the Division of International Special Education and Services Conference (DISES) in Braga. In the last few days, we’ve made the film available to the public. You can watch it HERE.
After the interview, Cindy and I decided we would spend the afternoon seeing some of the sights of the City…and I ran into the greatest super hero(s) of all time!
One of the most emotional and inspiring adventures was our visit to the 911 Museum located at Ground Zero in New York. This was an experience we will never forget. Pictures simply cannot capture what we encountered within the walls of the building…but here are a few we can share.
