    Today is International Day of Persons With Disabilities, a day that was founded in 1992 to bring awareness to the rights and well-being of those living with disabilities.

    I love how there is a day that brings recognition to these issues and gives the chance to educate our able-bodied allies on the many challenges we face in an ableist world. At the same time, I wish we didn’t have to continually fight for our basic rights and were more accepted and understood. Sometimes it’s tiring.

    How are you recognizing this day, if at all?

    Honestly I didn’t know this was a thing.  Bringing awareness can be difficult , especially to those who aren’t affected by it.  Sometimes just living my life is how I bring awareness.
