Re: Friedreich ataxia
The world is full of disabled people who are routinely stigmatized, marginalized, and ostracized. We shun the disabled, because they frighten and depress us by reminding us of life's limitations. Let's reverse this systematic exclusion of the disabled by recognizing that they are not memento mori or bed-ridden burdens, but rather heroic figures who can teach us how to face and overcome life's inevitable challenges.
Competing interests: I have a self-published e-book called "Peace Poetry & The LOVE Diet", which promotes peace, simplifies health, and demystifies addiction.
