What is Courage Center's Zeitgeist?
Zeitgeist means "the spirit of the times" or "the spirit of the age." Moreover, Zeitgeist is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and/or political climate within a nation or even specific groups, along with the general ambience, morals, sociocultural direction, and mood associated with an era.
So what does all that mean?
Simply put, the Courage Center Zeitgeist is a bite-sized breakdown of the week's news - highlights on policy, health care, and the disability world. It could be the latest news development on health care reform, a blog about how technology is helping to breakdown barriers to independence, or even a tweet about a breaking story at the Capitol. We also throw in stories that show the incredible achievements of people with disabilities around the world.
