Grateful on workshop issue

| Monday, March 20, 2017, 9:00 p.m.

To all those involved with the My Choice, My Work, My Life rally ( “State reverses course on sheltered workshop requirements” ): We want to thank everyone — the representatives, workshops, schools, parents, workers, students, families and friends of all of our special-needs children and adults — for all of the hard work that went into going to Harrisburg and keeping our sheltered workshop programs the way they are meant to be: a choice for the individual.

We could not be more proud of all of the people involved. It was a privilege to be a part of an outstanding group of people from all across Pennsylvania who cared so much about not only our son, but also all the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters and relatives who really needed their voices to be heard.

Congratulations! Our voices were heard. Changes are being made and people listened. Thank you and God bless all of you.

Debbie, Dwayne & Dylan Buffer

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
