Our Lead Lifestyle Cur8tor, Heather Watkins published an article on her blog, Slow Walkers See More, and it resonates with me on so many levels. It deals with the perception of disability, the power of self-identifying, and the use of the word disability which always seems to be a point of contention. I can't tell you how many times people correct me when I use the word. As a congenital amputee missing digits this is my life, it's all I've ever known, it impacts how I pick up a cup of coffee, how I snap my fingers, how practice hot yoga etc...I am unapologetic about using the term disability. Let me know what you think after reading Heather's article.
