Here's to my friends with disabilities

I spent some time this week being a reporter for a blind curling championship for our accessible tv cahnnel here in Canada.

Spent lots of time with lots of strong and positive people who have disabilities.  Some other reporters who are blind, curlers who are blind.  And tomorrow, am going to the university radio station here to work on using the equipment and recording with a friend who is partially sighted and another one who is blind, uses a wheelchair, and has limited use of her hands.  We are not super human. We are not sub-human.  We are living our lives to the fullest.  We are showing the world that we are here, living full and active lives, demanding equal access to all aspects of life, figuring things out with skill and humour.  Here's to that!  Together we can make the world a more accessible place for us all!
