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."
