#CPChatNow Recap- 09-07-2016

Excitement stirred throughout the evening Wednesday, September 7th, 2016. I am #CPChatNow co-host Zachary Fenell, ready to compress all the excitement into a weekly recap. This week’s Twitter chat coincided with the 2016 Paralympics opening ceremonies. Naturally the conversation drifted to the games.

The #CPChatNow community discusses the 2016 Paralympics.Now while I directed my question to Devin, anyone could answer. So let us open up the floor. Answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question “Are there any particular Paralympic events you are looking forward to?” Leave your response in the “Comments” section.

Discussion went beyond the Paralympics too. I sparked dialogue with my greeting by asking about lessons learned this week.

Hamda learned leaving your comfort zone leads to personal growth.Hamda’s reply led to detailed talk about leaving comfort zones.

#CPChatNow community members answer "When has leaving your comfort zone benefited you?"More discussion about leaving your comfort zone.Additionally I shared some community news, officially announcing our September 2016 Google Hangout date.

Glancing ahead next week looks eventful for us at #CPChatNow. You may recall Wednesday we hold September’s focus chat. A chat our own Jen will lead!

#CPChatNow's own Jen will showcases her expertise in collectibles when she hosts our monthly focus chat Wednesday, September 14th.Zachary shares what you can expect from next week's focus chat on collectibles.Before starting a countdown to September 14th and September 15th though, allow me to finish recapping this week’s Twitter chat. Towards the chat’s end conversation returned to the Paralympics.

Paralympics emerge again as a discussion point.#CPChatNow discusses how the media covers the Paralympics and if ableism is involved.Honestly, like Blemi I did not always know the difference between the Paralympics and Special Olympics. However, I quickly learned in 2012 when writing the following blog post, “Debunking Misconceptions: Paralympics/Special Olympics Confusion.” Feel free to pass on the post to help educate others on the differences.

Meanwhile also remember to answer this week’s extend-the-conversation question. “Are there any particular Paralympic events you are looking forward to?”

Keep the conversation going! Answer "Are there any particular Paralympic events you are looking forward to?"Comment below to respond.

Talk with you later!
