Disabled or able-boded, it’s their choice on how they choose to live their life. It has taken many years to know that I am not my disability; my disability is only a piece of me.

TAKING A STAND FOR YOURSELF CAN HELP OTHERS

 The other day I was talking with some friends. I realize we are a part of the first generation of people with disabilities to grow up with the ADA acts of 1973 and 1990.

WE HAVE VOICES

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog entitled “YOU ARE SO SMART.” (https://sixlegtoindependentlifefromawalker.com/2021/11/15/198/) The blog was about how society doesn’t see the CP community as much more than their physical appearance.
