Honoring Equality for All on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2012

I have a dream, too, Dr. King.

When we speak of equality and dignity and human justice for all in your name, especially on this important day in history, we must remember to add those with disabilities to the equation and valuable discussions.

Their struggles and lives matter, too. Yet too often, they are ignored in these discussions.

Here's a past post about my take on this important day. I still stand by these words today.

That was a wonderful article you wrote back in 2008 and yes it still rings true.

How sad that we have to advocate everyday for our childrens rights when they are the basic rights all should have.
