Abby’s Insights on Beauty & Blindness
“Did you know membership within the largest minority group in the world is always open to everyone? It’s true, yet somehow the world still excludes the majority of us because of our membership status.”
Membership Has Its Rewards Or Does It?
Our minority group; people with disabilities (PWDs) that is, don’t care about gender, religion, education or other characteristics that define a person. We are the only minority group where anyone at any given time of their lives can become a member.
I wonder what the world would be like if the majority of the population were PWDs? Personally, I think we would still be as discriminatory as we are today because of the majority numbers game. With so many people on the planet, it’s unlikely we’ll ever be accepting of everyone but why don’t we celebrate our differences?
Instead of looking at PWDs with pity or disdain why not let’s try to be kind? Whether we are born with or acquire a disability later in life we are no more or no less human than anyone else.
We can transcend barriers by changing the way we perceive one another. The way we will achieve this goal is by sharing our stories, getting out there and living our lives.
