    Well said.  I remember the days when people spoke in hushed voices about those in wheelchairs.  Not really done anymore - we've come a long way, but there's more work to be done to change attitudes.   There's still plenty of disability discrimination in the workplace as well as in schools.

      Dear Healthyguy,

       

      You are so right - we have come a long way and yes, we do still have a long way to go.  The world will be a much better place if we could all learn to understand one another.  We all have some kind of a disability whether it be a chronic illness or poor eyesight or even something as "simple" as not being able to ride a bicycle! ...

      Dear Healthyguy,

       

      You are so right - we have come a long way and yes, we do still have a long way to go.  The world will be a much better place if we could all learn to understand one another.  We all have some kind of a disability whether it be a chronic illness or poor eyesight or even something as "simple" as not being able to ride a bicycle!  Everyone has something about them that needs understanding.  The world would be a more livable place to live in if we could just learn compassion.
