Is It Not Possible To Look Beyond

“Is it not possible to look beyond the canes, the wheelchairs, the braces, and the crutches into the hearts of the people who have need of these aids? They are human beings and want only to be treated as ordinary people. They may appear different, move awkwardly, and speak haltingly, but they have the same feelings. … They want to be loved for what they are inside, without any prejudice for their impairment.  Can there not be more tolerance for differences—differences in capacity, differences in body and in mind?”
