Disabled children hate crime reports increasing
My fellow disabled children… how
can I tell you about this sadness nicely… It is because more of us are being allowed to exist and more of us, we the disabled, are gaining courage to go outside to live among the people we are part of. Many misguided children and even elders will frown upon our existence, some will even feel sorry for us as if we are the lesser, but know this, together as a people, we shall be literate and in the silence our voice shall be heard ringing like a silver trump (the sound of a wind instrument, not Donald Trump) of freedom as Frederick S. Douglass, a slave who freed himself through literature and education, suggested. And then, we shall find a common ground to be recognized not only by immediate family members who hide and weep with us silently, but also by the people. For we do not want people to cry for us.
