#CPChatNow Recap- 12-5-2018

This past week #CPChatNow was lit as always.  Members talked about claiming handicapped parking spots and what makes someone strong.  This week’s chat was also a unique chat as it was #CPChatNow’s 5th anniversary.  Members talked about positive effects from #CPChatNow and what they would make the official theme song of #CPChatNow.  This is #CPChatNow Co-Host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap.

First, Blemi sparked an intriguing discussion by asking if she should feel guilty for claiming the only handicapped parking spot:

I added in the importance of attitude towards others:
