This Doesn't Surprise Me

Anne Belanger was heartbroken when she discovered her son — who uses a wheelchair — had been placed off to the side in his Grade 2 class photo.

Check out Ms. Belanger's story here, and then go read one of my very early blog entries.  It's obvious that in the last 8-10 years, and I'm sure longer than that, nothing has changed.  Oh, we might see little victories here and there for our children with disabilties, but the overall attitudes are still the same.  Very sad...

Oh, the irony.

I just posted this on Facebook and said that it reminded me of your post, "Why didn't anyone tell me she was contagious?"

And this is how kids learn that the disabled are 2nd class citizens. Geez.
