I think it is a good idea to campaign for improvements and changes which will help sick and disabled people and happy enough for ESA SOS to be publicised here, however as people here already know I have reservations about some of the approaches taken and language used.

Sorry it is hard to explain where I am coming from and if I were to start a conversation on what I am thinking I should use a different thread.

I do think campaigns like ESA SOS can empower people and it does show that sick and disabled people can have a voice.

Hopefully more people will reply to this thread.

Thanks pooledenver. I was sad not to be able to participate in this campaign due to the fact that I don't tweet. I am glad that it went well.

I don't tweet (or Facebook) either, but those two 'social media' sites seem to be where everything is these days  >erm<
