This is down right inhuman. To be segregated in an institution, home, in sheltered work shops, to have local government agencies make choices as to what services we can or can't get despite being disabled and to have basic decision making rights revoked??? Come on we are adults not babies or kids. This is definitely inhuman so please share this post. 😡

What a tragedy!!! Last night I found out that my friend Peter Blundy has passed away. He died peacefully.

Many years ago he suffered a brain damage and had been living with a condition called locked-in syndrome. A few years after his accident he recovered from depression and set out to tell his story to the world. His website is the result of his efforts.

Please, note that he was a complete quadriplegic. He could only use his chin to move the mouse and one of his fingers to do the clicking. Yet, what he achieved is nothing short of marvelous, and has become an encouragement to many, among them me and my friends.

This group is also the result of his attempt bring disabled people and supporters together.

Please, visit his blog and read his life story if you have time, and leave a comment if you can. I will maintain his website and his groups to keep his memory and work alive...

Disability is not a curse but a ray of hope,
if you look at it as a power.
Do not forget to watch and share
a very special story.
अंधा होना एक अभिशाप नहीं है। कृष्ण लाल गौतम की सच्ची कहानी।
