Please Stand By

On September 10, 2009, Nick Dupree was able to leave the rehab hospital in New York City where he had been living for approx. 378 days after moving from Mobile Alabama (well after his previous crusade), while waiting to get services and supports established to live in the community.

It’s a wait that’s shorter than many others, but longer than he’d expected or hoped would be the case. Luckily he is now home, and working on next steps, next battles to be fought.

To all those listening, supporting, and watching along the way, he gives thanks. He’ll continue to write and fight about things that are just and unjust as he adjusts to a new standard of living.

After he catches up on some sleep.

    Calm before the storm…A storm named Nick that fights to give a good cleansing to things that need cleaning. Rest well, my friend…then “Go Get Em” !!!
    You fight for many !

  • He now, apparently, refers to himself in the third-person. ;-P

    You are correct, sir.

  • L'shanah tovah to you Nick and welcome home. So glad you see you sleeping peacefully.

  • ADAPT focuses on policy more than individual cases, so getting me transferred to the community was accomplished largely by Alejandra and I fighting alone…
