I was captivated by this brief advertisement (1:07 mins) I have seen while surfing the net. I thought that you might find the content intriguing like how I initially felt.
Disabled... Yes, we see them everywhere: on the road, at the mall, in school campuses, etc. Some may be walking with a guide, others with an assistive orthoses such as a wheelchair or a cane while limping through the destination they are treading; while a few could be deformed all over or would talk with a slur.
Sad to say, a common scenario that may have a negative connotation to the word, "disabled" are those we frequently see on the thoroughfares begging and making it their way of living.
When I was younger, the sight of any disabled person we saw on the road while my friends and I were in the school bus was the source of our ridicule! We stared, gawked, mocked and even laughed to our heart's content. Yes, I was guilty and like you, I too wondered for the reasons behind the disability, the life prior to the injury and the many how's the injured is coping with the lofty issues prevalent.
Would you pause for a moment please? Does anyone give you the pleasure of having the feeling of being inferior over them? Deep down your heart, did you ever feel "disabled" because of a skill you lack, the demise of a significant other, a failed relationship or a horrible episode in your past?
Tell me what you have in mind. What defines you?
