This post in particular — and this blog in general — are amazing. I’m slowly working my way through the archives and just reveling in the compelling stories this mother-daughter team tells. The one today about Yulia Simonova, a woman in a wheelchair in Russia, and her fight for inclusion in a county that cares more about the masses than the individual, really hit home. I don’t consider myself disabled, but even in a country that values the individual, it’s still hard to be different. I can only imagine what it’s like for Yulia, who had to be home-schooled because schools in Russian weren’t handicap-accessible when she was a child.
So, enjoy and be thankful; I know I did and am.
