When I look at my son, I see a happy, healthy 3 year old boy. A boy who loves sports, who would rather be outside than inside. A boy with a sense of humor and a wry smile. A boy who puts his leg on when he wants to run and play standing up. A boy who takes his leg off when he wants to play mini hockey on his knees. I look at him and see desire, motivation and drive. I never look at him and see a disability. Ever.
This TED talk by Aimee Mullins discusses the notion of disabled and how much of an impact a label can have on an individual. I invite you to watch and comment below on your thoughts.
