What do you think of when you read or hear this word?
Someone not able to...?
Someone less than others because they can't...?
Someone who struggles to...?
Someone not up to par who needs the playing field leveled to compete in...?
What about all the abilities someone does have, are they less for having one area that doesn't function completely?
Unless...what if it were your child with a disability...what would you think then?
I don't like the connotations of the word, let's find a new one.
And while we're at it, let's think differently about those previously labeled with that word and be accepting of what they do have to offer this world.
And, finally, blessings to all of you who already are thinking and accepting and disregarding the label.
