Modern Families

Katie Couric had a segment on modern families and what they look like today. One of the families profiled were Bill and Shelley - the couple I blogged about that were the subject of the article No Disability Could Keep Them Apart from the Washington Post.

Bill gave a passionate statement at the end of the video. I loved what he had to say; and I love that it came directly from a person with a disability.

"Yes, of course we have challenges. But the real challenge, the real disability, is the ignorance, the uneducated. So if you see people w/disabilities like us, or other disabilities, keep your eyes open, keep your ears open, then you'll give them the respect they so (richly?) need."

That was beautiful. Thanks for sharing. How great that they were included as a MODERN family and not a family with disabilities!
