"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar." - Helen Keller

Of all the essays I read on yesterday's blogswarm against telethons, one stood out. I suggest everyone take a few moments and read what Ballastexistenz had to say. She talks not only about the effects of pity, but how people with disabilities avoid others and situations in which pity might occur. Is this what parents of children with disabilities also do at times? Have I done this? I hope the answer is NO, but I would bet it is YES.
