Disability

As you probably discovered: I love quotes! Good quotes…

So today I read one, which I think is very true. I would like to hear your opinion about this quote from Fred Rogers:

“The problem with the word “disability” is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk.

But what of people who can’t feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in

constructive ways?

What of people who aren’t able to form close and strong relationships? And people who live in

disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love?

These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.”

    Thought provoking post. Once we shed the chains of what other people and society in general expect us to be, only then can one find the courage to dare become that which were were meant to be.

    I spend my working hours trying to help emotionally disabled people come back to health. This is an excellent quote.
