Freedom and Independence with Your Wheelchairs
By Mart Gil
Many people think that one is totally worthless when he becomes disabled. Disability always brings this notion but I strongly disagree with it. I've seen lots of disabled persons who have become large icons in their chosen genres. Come to think of it, some of them are even more valuable than other "more normal creatures. The best examples are the people in wheelchairs.
Have you seen the news about the Olympics for persons with disability? If you did, you'll certainly be amazed by them because their condition never hinders them from achieving their dreams and trying to put their own marks in this cruel world. Cruel, in the sense, that some people experience something that can be considered unbearable but this something actually makes this world a more exciting place to live in. And it showed with these "wheel-chaired people, isn't it?
Wheelchairs, I must say, have become these people's best friends. They have become more independent and confident about themselves because of this truly helpful equipment. If not for these chairs, they might have been still experiencing the pain and confusion brought about by the incident that has caused them to be disabled. These chairs have become their powerful companions! And, it also goes with the fast-paced world - it also continues to revolutionize and get modernized.
Imagine if not for Harry Jennings who created the first wheelchair, life for persons with disabilities will never be easy. It has truly made them feel that their existence must not be put to waste because of their condition. A good thing - they did not let themselves to be confined solely on their wheelchairs. Furthermore, they have realized that it's always good to feel free and do what they really want whatever it will take. Most of them have become these stronger and firmer persons and they are so sure that nothing's impossible if they"ll push themselves to do what they need to do.
Being free is independence. Being independent is freedom. We might differ in terms of physical state and we may not be using wheelchairs unlike the disabled ones yet we all have the same worth in this existence. For persons with disabilities, know your strengths and weaknesses, and free yourselves to survive fairly. In fact, whether disabled or not, all of us have our own places in this world - everybody has a dream to achieve and a purpose to serve.
About The Author
Well, I must say that I am not a born writer. I didn't acquire this gift hereditarily either. However, I'm an adventure book lover and used to read everything that I come across in the Internet that sounds interesting. I think, I only developed it through constant practice and exposure to numerous writing stuff. I was chosen to compete in press conferences that showcased my need-so-well-developed writing skills. I became part of our school publication staff. I started as a news writer and photojournalist of the school paper. Soon, I was appointed editor-in-chief. It was during this time when I realized that I needed to be more efficient in writing because duty called for it. I should say that this event in my life opened me wholly to the wonderful world of writing.
