heroes

“Furthermore, we have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have one before us, the labyrinth is fully known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”
Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces

This is a good time to be disabled because of all the hard work done by so many that have come before us. It boggles my mind that not that long ago if a person was disabled they were thought to be inferior and many times hidden away or put in an institution.

We need to celebrate the freedoms that we have and work to ensure that the next generation coming up has an even better time than we do. Hopefully in the near future when buildings are designed they will have universal access in mind and not a second though. And my dream is to be spoken to as a person and not have people try to talk to the person I am with like I am invisible.
