“The doctors said that I wouldn’t walk.
But, I am here in front of you.
However, if I grew up with social media, I don’t think I would be.
I hope that together, we can create more positive images of disability in the media and everyday life.
Perhaps if there were more positive images, it would foster less hate on the internet. Or maybe not.
Maybe it still takes a village to teach our children well.”
MORE LOVE. LESS HATE.
Teach your children well.
And to Maysoon, in the unlikely event you read this:
I know you said you aren’t inspirational. I’ll let you own that. But you give me Hope and make my mama’s heart sing. So thank you.
And I apologize on behalf of the misguided, ignorant jerk with ugly prayers. I can assure you that my friends and I pray to a God who teaches better than that.
