#191 disabled perform

When I look at these performers, I’m humbled and I couldn’t tell or see any difference from us, the abled.

It appears their performances and their dispositions are so like us, that often times we just forget who they are when we become irritated and unappreciative.

At the same time, they put many to shame for their verve to living.

The disabled in the society are not regarded especially in some Asian countries…perhaps due to poverty and underdeveloped. Take for instance, in Thailand, many disabled are born to the poor in the villages.

So often the blind and deaf and dumb are regarded as disabled but there are many other disabled like those suffering cerebralpalsy, atrophy of the nerves…

However there are many disabled among the elderly. As one aged, especially in the 60s or 70s age group many suffer some form of disabilities.

This Paralympics has opened my eyes to many and great possibilities for those disabled. Can they enter the mainstream of workplace? Or will they start their own to complement the mainstream?
