Dear Gimpy Law Readers,

I am honored at how well Gimpy Law has been received and that it has a global presence. Look at how gorgeous you all look on this map!
I don’t believe that this Gimpy Law blogger deserves the credit. I believe that it is a testament to the relevance of disability and prevalence of people with disabilities around the world. Let’s keep on keeping on!
Your Gimpy Law blogger.
I am amazed that the mad rantings of this Gimpy Law attorney actually has readers, let alone that it has so many readers around the world. Here’s a summary of the Top Views by Country in the history of GimpyLaw, as of today:
253 United States views. 6 Canada views. 4 South Korea views. 2 Malaysia views. 1 Morocco view. 1 Philippines view.
In one of my college Rhetoric classes, Expository Writing, we read an essay about how a writer wanted to hand deliver individualized messages to each of her readers, old school Pony Express style. I wish I could get to know each of GimpyLaw’s readers, their unique stories, what draws them to this GimpyLaw blog, and our communities, whether they be disabilities or ties to advancing justice.
But perhaps I should introduce myself first. I’m a 30ish Korean American women with a disability. I’m originally from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, but lived in California for 9 years, where I went to law school at UC Davis. I recently moved back to Illinois to participate in a program that will help me start my own law practice. I’m also starting a non-profit housing cooperative, called Able Community.
That’s enough of a dating service description about me; I do not like long walks on the beach, by the way. I’d like to hear about you, my readers. Feel free to drop me a line in the comment section below!
Happy 4th of July! As we celebrate America’s independence, does it make you think about what independence means for the disability community?
