These tokens were for people who have been alcohol free for 30, 60 and 90 days. There were a few members that were able to receive these tokens and were excited to announce they had been alcohol free for the amount of days of the token earned.

After reading the entire essay, it is clear that the general topic of “On Being a Cripple” is to be content and proud of what you do or do not have. By not calling herself ‘disabled,’ she shows great respect for the fact that she is able to do many things. She does not always let her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) keep her from being herself on a daily basis.
