If we are all the same then it won’t matter what we are – that’s what I learned today
It’s 5: 27 PM on day 568 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, work, feed myself vegetable burger for breakfast, drink tea by myself, continue reading Mockingjay - the third book in The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - watch TV, feed myself rice and curry for lunch and watch some more TV.
I believe that if we make people understand that we are all the same discrimination would be a thing of the past which is why I went with the ‘I Am Disabled’ campaign idea that popped into my head this morning – the idea behind the campaign is to make people realize that we are all “disabled” (we all have things we wish we could do but can’t) thus making none of us “disabled” – if you wish to participate in ‘I Am Disabled’ write a blog post about ’I Am Disabled’ telling the world what your “disability” is and link to your post below or tweet/Facebook me your answer to the following question: What do you wish you could do but can’t? (Note: If you’re sending your answer to me via Twitter be sure to attach #IAmDisabled at the end of your tweet). Have you somehow managed to show the world that we are more alike than we are different?
