It is within our nature to cast an assuming glance and to judge reality. Within just a matter of seconds our world becomes what we project it to be.
A middle-aged man in a suit can become a burnt out business man, a tall beautiful woman will become a model, an airhead or maybe a femme fatal, a group of rowdy teenage boys are just up to no good and a woman sitting in a wheelchair–well we feel sorry for her. We picture health issues and disability checks, because after all, she is in a wheelchair.
What’s frustrating is getting people to see you in any other way. We’ve toured the heaven’s and have unveiled our genetic code, but for a lot of people, it’s difficult to believe what I truly am capable of. Why is that? Why does my wheelchair or disability void any abilities I do have or have had in the past?
