Have you noticed how people without disabilities, treat people with disabilities like they are so special and people who help them are incredible human beings?
I was, with a friend/someone who helps me with certain actives like shopping and cleaning at home that I can’t reach, at Sam’s Club the other day. We were standing in line and a lady in line next to us comes up and says how it is so nice how you are helping that special person (Referring to me).
I had to fight myself to keep my cool or the beast in me would have come out! My support services person on the other hand couldn’t help but pipe up and respond to the lady, “Lady, one day we will all need help.” My support services person told me she had to hold herself back because she would have let the lady have it.
People say things like, “What is wrong with him, is he retarded or disabled or something?” There is no need for it, if you don’t know then don’t ask. Besides it is none of their business.
There is a British video called Talk on YouTube and it turns the world around. Persons with disabilities are the norm and those without disabilities are considered different. Check it out, it’s funny and serious.
Time to change everyone and quit putting others down because they are different!
