Esther,I have a link at my site for another similar organization and personally know the people who founded the one I support.I hope that all Americans will support at least one such organization. The one of Sea Witch's site looks like a good one!
Here is what I had to say on Patrick's site:Seawitch, that is an absolutely amazing and bloody important cause that you are supporting. As I have a high-level spinal cord injury I also use a voice-activated computer. I have my little microphone that I speak into, and because I can move my arms I have a trackball mouse. Everyone's injuries are different thus I think it is a brilliant idea to raise funds for individual computer setups. I know what it is like to be stuck in hospital for a long time with nothing to do and no access to the outside world, at my rehab centre there was one general access computer for 20 patients which didn't even have voice recognition on it. And the other computer they had which had voice recognition did not have access to the Internet, and you could only use that computer by appointment between 12 and 5 p.m.This project will make a massive difference to the lives of wounded soldiers. Giving them access to the outside world, as well as the independence that voice-activated computers will bring, is such an honourable way to thank them for the sacrifices they have made for our well-being.
Thank YOU seawitch...and AOW too.Rachy.....beautiful comment. Thanks for posting it here too. :)
