I am a person with C.P.
I am a person with developmental disabilities.
I am a person who can't walk..and yet I let nothing stop.
Ask me how life?
Well my story is long, too much to tell but Ill make it short for all of you.
I need assistance for all daily living activities.
Don't judge me because of my physical disability.
I have abilities and limits. Don't dis-able me.
I am considered to be what people in the medical field says " wheelchair bound"
A tittle or label I go against, I disagree with and i would like such term to be removed.
All I ask is that we get respected for who we are. Respect us for what we can and can't do. Don't just downgrade us because you see many of us in wheelchairs.
Don't be fooled by this wheelchair.. Looks are not always the perfect view but its our mind that counts.
( This is my first speech I written has I await becoming a speaker in the advocate world I will be all set!
