Everyone has their heroes.
I have mine.
The choice to have something define us is just that: a choice. I’ve learned this over the past seven years, where I’ve had the great pleasure and privilege of working at a recreational camp for individuals with disabilities.
I also say individuals with disabilities because, unlike ‘disabled person,’ disability, in this instance, acts an adjective. Not a definition.
At this camp, I learned that a rock wall can be climbed in many ways.
That there are many ways to swim.
… and to dance,
That happiness and friendship matter most.
and that nothing is impossible.
