“Disability is not something terrible that needs to be fixed, cured, or made to go away forever. It is a natural part of reality. We ask for acceptance as equal members of society.” From the PSA “Your Daily Dosage of Inspiration” by Cheryl Green and Caitlin Wood.
This is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) about how some disabled people feel about being called inspirational. Some of us feel that it shows that people have lowered expectations for us when they call us inspirational or amazing for going about our daily lives with disabilities.
