Integration, not Domination: A Response to “Midnight, Three & Six”

Alisa Weilerstein

In January 2015 The New York Times posted an "Op Doc" and article titled Midnight, Three & Six about a Texas family who’s teenage daughter has Type 1 diabetes. The piece resinated strongly with cellist Alisa Weilerstein who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at a young age. She was compelled to write a response to the video which was published on Medium and can be read here. She hopes this powerful and personal essay will offer some guidance and comfort to families whose lives have been affected by Type 1 Diabetes.
