I have been away for a few days in Tiberias. I will post photos, hopefully, in a few days. (As well as my experiances rafting in the Jordan river!) But here are two small vignettes for now, quickly, before I go to sleep:
I took my morning walk today (I pretty much kept my exercise/diet requimes while vacationing), and I saw an adult pushing/pulling a teenager with some type of disability (I suspect autism) onto a school bus. It was a bit disheartening; I would like to see better methods used. But then, barely twenty steps further, I was pleased to see a young adult (age 18? 21?)with Down syndrome sitting at a bus stop, backpack on, obviously managing very well on his own.
