“The r word is not only offensive to those with disabilities but also their families and friends because it’s dehumanizing that our society can label someone based on something they didn’t choose. Instead of only focusing on what those with disabilities cannot do, we should recognize all the great things they can do. It upsets me that people would rather label people like my sister instead of getting to know her as a person because that’s what she is, no different from anyone else.”
