Day 3. International Day of Disabled Persons

Day 3. 22 Days to go before Christmas.

Tea: Let It Snow (Green Tea)

My sister was born with Down’s Syndrome, and contrary to what most people think when they hear about it, she is the most amazing, cheerful, and loving human being ever. Today is the International Day of Disabled Persons, but I don’t really like using the word disabled. It has a connotation of being limited. In some ways, it’s true, but I always like to look at it in a positive light. My sister, for instance, is blessed with the gift of joy that she shares with everyone around her. My sister and many others have never let their “disability” define their whole existence. At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that they are no less than any of us.
