QUOTES TO MAKE YOU THINK!

“ Disability is natural. We must stop believing that disabilities keep a person from doing something. Because that’s not true… Having a disability doesn’t stop me from doing anything.”

– Benjamin Snow, in his Grade 8 essay “Attitudes About People with Disabilities.”

In 2006 he wrote, produced, directed and starred in a 60 second film entitled “Thumbs Down to Pity” It focused on Hollywood’s “pitiful” portrayal of people with disabilities.
