RWSIR Director Frank Ruzycki served as Master of Ceremonies for the lunch- eon. Rev. Jan Stewart Tolbert gave the invocation. Guest speaker Tyron Elliott, Manchester attorney and a candidate last November for the Georgia Senate District 14 seat, told the employees that most vis- itors see first the beautiful architecture of the Institute's buildings, but he knew that what they saw first were the people. He said diseases and physical infirmities were like "bullies on a school play- ground." "I look at the Quadrangle and I don't see buildings," he said. "I see a battlefield on which bullies are beaten." He said it is no longer cor- rect to think of peopl limit- ed by physical abilities as vic- tims. HE SHARED with them the story of a female client of his who was deaf and blind. "She awoke every day with the twin bullies of silence and darkness," EUiott said. But he said she was one of the feistiest persons he had ever known. He said she fought those '"oullies" every day and never gave in to them. "You enable people to fight bullies so they are not viewed as helpless victims," E1]iott told the RWSIR employees. An avid student of histo- ry, Elliott reminded his lis- teners of the words of Winston Churchill to British citizens during World War II, "Never, never, never, never quit."
