Makes you think, doesn't it?

I read this article last week, (Friday?), and it's been making me think. I think Julie Leung is definitely on to something here. I think this can be similar in the disability community, or just about any community. Take any triumph, any discriminatory experience, any frustration, and someone has shared that before. When I write about textbook struggles, DMV troubles (not even disability specific, Allergic Reactions and many other subjects I don't want to bother looking up right now, other people have experienced it. They understand. For me, the sharing is good, but hopefully, it can be good for my readers too. In just that list, I see some issues related to disabilities, but many related to just anyone. And I think, but don't know for sure, that this is a good thing. We can talk about how people with disabilities are just normal people until we're blue in the face, but some people don't get it. Usually, they have to see it. Maybe, blogs can provoke thought. When we write about our struggles, triumphs and every day lives, other people can maybe, just maybe begin to understand.
