After my last entry, I started to see the issue at hand from a different light. If you want to view someone with a disability as "inspiring", go right ahead. If seeing me and the physical limitations I possess inspires you to attempt something you thought was too challenging to overcome, I wish you all the best in your efforts. When it comes right down to it, the only way we in the disabled community can change others perspective on what it means to live with a disability, is to continue to go about our daily lives and interact with the world around us. I've often heard from strangers how "great" it is to see people like me (i'm assuming they mean disabled) out in public. If we don't want to be treated like an anomaly we have to face the ignorance of others and overcome the proverbial sting of inaccessibility head on. We have to continue to press forward for change. If others don't see the struggle, how can we expect them to understand our needs?
