A Trip Down Memory Lane…

A Trip Through Memory Lane… “I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don’t have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.” ― Virginia Woolf I was reading through some of my blogs recently. Even though it’s

Blest Be the Tie That Binds

When two people are connected, there is a tie – a common thread they both share. For some, it may be church, and for others, it may be a movie or music. For Michael Wasserman and me, it was his artwork and The International Down Syndrome Coalition – in the beginning, at least. Now the tie that

Why We Should All Kerri On!

WHY WE SHOULD ALL KERRI ON! Okay, so it’s been far too long since I’ve written in this blog. It has been a bittersweet couple of months for me personally. This incredible group of people who have joined me in my dream of matching runners with children and adults with special needs is growing so

I can, I will, I DO!

This last month has been particularly hard on me. I’ve been living in a hotel in a small rural North Dakota town where the main attraction is the obelisk erected at the geological center of North America. While the people here are very nice, it’s not home, nor is it my future home of Nashville.

Milestones!

Each of us lives life in our own way. We are independent, well, for the most part we are. As we grow, we reach certain milestones. At first the milestones are more for someone else’s joy; for example, our first birthday (we certainly don’t remember that!), our first steps and our first words. I’m fairly

It’s all in your heart (not your mind)!

When I crossed the finish line of my first ever 5K in Michael’s honor, I fought back a lot of tears. He had pushed me to victory. No, I didn’t win the race nor did I even come close to first place, but he had gotten inside my heart and gave me the courage to
