Everyone is created differently. That was God's plan. Some people are short, while others are tall. Some people wear glasses because their eyes aren't perfect. Others might wear a hearing aid because they don't hear well. And still others might use sign language to communicate because they are unable to speak. Are these people treated differently because of these things? Not usually. But there is a large population of people who are treated differently because of their differences. These are people who are physically or mentally challenged. These are people who are physically handicapped. These are people who are developmentally disabled. Yes, these people have a disability. But they are people first.
Years ago, I was taking an online writing course. One of my assignments was to write an article. It could be about anything I wanted, I had no idea what to write about. At this time, I had been working at the Orion Corporation of MN for about 11 years or so. After much agonizing over what to write, I finally decided to write about my job working with people with disabilities.
