I had an amazing opportunity two weeks ago. I was asked to be part of an evening filming for a documentary being made.
The doc is on life after SCI in Minnesota and why we need to fund SCI research (the end goal of the documentary is to get a bill passed where drunk driving fines will go to research. Similar bills have been passed in Mass, NJ and Cali). View the petition for the Bill SF2417
And even though that in itself was really cool (myself, and two other guys with SCI were invited), we had tacos, there was a whole film crew there so that was pretty exciting…Chris Kluwe, the outspoken Vikings punter (NFL for those unawares) was there. He’s been in the national news lately for supporting gay rights, despite not being gay himself (his brother-in-law is).
There is an amendment up for vote in MN next week that would make gay marriage
