What a wonderful world it is when you check CNN.com during a break from the dreaded Monday work day and see an article about a very inspiring person you just happen to know. Brad Cohen is a family friend and has been gaining more and more attention as an educator (yeah, an educator is actually getting attention). He has Tourettes and has spent the entire life battling people’s perception of the disorder while helping young kids cope with something he knows all too well. There was a made for TV movie about his own struggle that cheesed it up, but still got the point across about overcoming obstacles.

Check out what he’s doing now. Sounds like these kids are having the summer of a lifetime. Way to be Brad!
