We just finished disability awareness week in our school. This is a week full of activities to help all children become more sensitive to those with disabilities, and to help build a sense of empathy for people living with disabilities. The activities are organized by parents, many of whom have children with disabilities. The parents volunteer to spend an hour or so in each classroom conducting interesting and thought-proving activities with students in grades K-5.
So, I just came across this video on my Facebook page, and I will be sharing this with teachers and parents. I think this is a wonderful example of someone who did not let a disability keep him from fulfilling his dream.
