Do You Know What’s It Like

DO YOU KNOW WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE DISABLED AND HAVE A HARD TIME GETTING AROUND

AND TO HAVE PEOPLE IN SUCH A HURRY, THEY’D LIKE TO RUN YOU INTO THE GROUND

AND TO GO OUT TO A MOVIE OR DINNER AND HAVE PEOPLE TURN THEIR HEAD AND LOOK THE OTHER WAY

SO INSTEAD OF GREETING YOU WITH A SMILE, THEY’RE AFRAID THEY WILL CATCH WHAT YOU HAVE TODAY

THEN THERE’S A DISABILITY PEOPLE ARE SO RELUCTANT TO MENTION AND IT HAS NO COUNTRIES OR BORDERS

IT’S CALLED PTSD, SHORT FOR POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE WHAT CAUSES IT OR WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

BUT DIFFERENT THINGS IN OUR LIFE CAN AFFECT US THERE CERTAINLY IS NO DOUBT

IT COULD BE WAR, LIFE OR DEATH, FIRE FALL OR ANY OF LIFE’S TRAGEDIES

SO OUR MOTTO IS “WE MAY BE DISABLED BUT WE’RE NOT DEAD” AND WE STRIVE TO MAKE OUR LIVES THE BEST THAT THEY CAN BE

THERE IS NO CERTAIN AGE FOR THIS AFFLICTION, FROM THE YOUNG TO THE VERY OLD

BUT THEY ALL NEED LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING AND THEIR STORY NEEDS TO BE TOLD

SO JUST TRY TO BE A LITTLE MORE TOLERANT AND BE UNDERSTANDING AND KIND

BECAUSE EVEN PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES ARE AN ASSET TO ALL MANKIND

THEY ALL HAVE NEEDS AND FEELINGS SO IN YOUR HEART BE TRUE

JUST THINK HOW YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED IF SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ANY OF YOU

BUT THE WORST TYPE OF DISABILITY, IS FEAR LOATHING AND DISGUST

AND FEELING SMUG IN OUR OWN WORLD AS LONG AS NOTHING HAPPENS TO US
