In our world so often our major choices seem to be selecting preordained ideas. For some, possibilities are stars shooting in the sky, while people with Cerebral Palsy are “swayed” to sit at home and watch T.V. This comfortable coaxing is a waste of talents and people’s lives. But an entire system exists to sustain it. When are we going to change it? When are we going to speak up and out?
It ought to be possible in the world we live in today, to get assistance from the organizations we reach out to. Instead, our issues are debated. They are treated lightly and are bones of contentions. We are (matters in question). When will they bring forth the ease from constraint to allow us to achieve and accomplish, rather then what is comfortable for those helping us.
The system is broken because there is a definite disconnect between what is assumed “they” think we should do, and what we are actually capable of doing. Where is people’s confidence in us? Where is the willingness to let our ability shine forth? Where is the bringing together and the building of bridges? It’s easy to stand over someone with criticism, advice, authoritative power, and well meant intentions; it is far harder to figure out how to help “us” accomplish what we think is important.
