People with disabilities are on two television shows this season, Idol has Scott who has been blind since birth. The Amazing Race has Margie (The mom) with normal hearing and Luke (the son) who is deaf. It is wonderful watching these young adults with disabilities compete with everyone else. They both have winning attitudes, and I hope they both win.
Far Guy and I had a friend that had disabling Multiple Sclerosis, she has been in the Nursing Home nearby for years. Her beautiful soul left this earth yesterday. She was 59. I and Far Guy are very sad, but happy at the same time..she is free from the catheters and the wheelchair. When her older sister was killed in a motorcycle accident about ten years ago, she felt that it should have been her..because she felt she had nothing to live for..and her sister had so much to live for. Her winning attitude was shaken by her sisters death, it took her a long time to get her winning attitude back. Yesterday she became an ultimate winner.
We have lots of wheelchair photographs..this one seems more appropriate today:)
