My intention with this article was to be a continuation of contributor Jason Hubal’s hope articles after his passing, but this year there was a seeming lack of interest. Jason passed away earlier this year. My hope for 2017 is for DisabilityVoice to help more people with disabilities and for DisabilityVoice website to grow in usability & number of users. If you missed the deadline for giving your hope, there is still time to give your hope for an article in the new year. Check out the inspirational quote for December 2016 at the end of this newsletter for some inspiration. People who don’t necessarily have a disability, but know people with disabilities are also invited to give your hope or inspiration. The new deadline is Thursday, January 19, 2017.
