Physically challenged people face a lot of obstacles in life. They have to life in a world where their way of doing things is different than other people. There are tools to help. There are wheelchairs to help them get around. There are appliances and devices designed to assist them in their day-to-day lives and they manage to function just fine. But there is one obstacle they cannot overcome. There is one obstacle that will forever impact them and get in their way. There is one obstacle that is determined to show them how they should live. That obstacle is people. People see people with physical challenges as damaged merchandise. They refuse to see that they are valuable, capable, intelligent contributing members of society.
