If perception is reality… then DisAbility is a function of faulty perception

When we as a culture are preoccupied in seeing what DOESNT work in people, we miss the great depth that comes from considering perspectives born out of different life experiences. Tolerance grows to become a scarce resource and normality takes on more stringent guidelines as our perspective narrows and ostracizes all that are deemed unworthy of inclusion.Taken to its furthest extreme we can even rationalize genocide!
