In Praise of Disabled People
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 dangers. Let’s reverse this systematic
exclusion of the disabled by recognizing that the disabled are not unfortunate,
irrelevant burdens, but rather heroic figures who can teach us how to face and
overcome life’s inevitable challenges.
