This is my life. Yes, I struggle and I hurt. But I am also strong and willing to fight, to stand up and be heard. Maybe no one wants to hear me, but they don’t have much of a choice. I am here to stay, and I will fight for the rights of the disabled.
I believe this is what I am called to do. It is not always easy, but I will do all that I can to make changes that will help others. I know I am only one person with a voice. But I am always looking for more people to speak out along with me.
To most people, it may seem silly to keep doing what I do, particularly when it seems like no one else wants to hear about what is wrong with our society.
Today, I finally figured out what I am meant to do. I am a fighter not afraid of anyone. The only thing I am afraid of, is losing my own voice and not being able to speak up for the disabled. My only other fear is not being there for my husband and kids.
My whole life, I have been fighting weakness and pain. All right, so I suffer a little bit, but I also try to help peopl . Having a disability can’t stop us unless we let it. And I won’t.
