During our lifetime, almost everyone will become disabled. That reality is the reason for one of our most basic fears, the fear of losing the ability to do the things we do every day, the things in which we take pride and take for granted. Sometimes when we encounter a person with a disability we shy away not out of personal dislike, but because we unconsciously fear the loss of our own ability. Disability Awareness Month is the opportunity to learn the reality that being disabled does not make anyone less of a human being.
