I know that in this politically correct world we live in today, people aren't ever quite sure how to refer to a disabled person like myself. Because of this fact, people tend not to say anything at all which only perpetuates the feeling that I have something to be ashamed about. We have a saying in our family that goes something like this: " Call me anything you want but don't call me late to dinner." I don't relish being called handicapped or special needs but in the end, they're just words. I think it more important that people are just aware of the challenges of the disabled and all the disenfranchised population so that everyone feels like they are welcome and worthy. Here's an interesting article a friend shared on FB which speaks to this subject matter.
