If you fail to see the person but only the disability, then, who is blind?

If you cannot hear your brother's cry for justice, who is deaf?

If you do not communicate with your sister but separate her from you, who is disabled?

If your heart and your mind do not reach out to your neighbour, who has the handicap?

If you do not stand up for the rights of all persons, who is the cripple?

Our attitudes towards persons with disabilities may be our biggest handicap, and yours too.
