Ice #14

This image was taken at Popham Beach a few weeks ago – ice and sand and surf.

Gov. Baldachi signed a proclamation today making April “MS Awareness Month” in Maine. There were about 30 of us MS-ers there, a scooter or two, some on crutches. He came in, made a few remarks, signed the thing, made a few more comments, and was gone. About 15 minutes. He was either very convincing, or he really did beleive in what he was doing.

He said, and I did not know this, that Maine has a rate of MS about 70% higher than the norm – one in every 400 Mainers has MS. I don’t think it will, but maybe this event today will make some difference.
