TED Talk: Aimee Mullins

I'm sure most of you have seen this video before, but I still thought it was worth sharing. Aimee asks the same question I always ask myself "What does it mean to be disabled?" I am envious of her, not because she is tall, athletic, attractive etc. I envy how she can choose to disclose or hide her physical impairment, whereas I don't quite have that freedom. She can make it very clear that she will have difficulty doing certain physical tasks, whereas I think people wonder, for example, why I walk up and down the stairs all funny.

  1. Great talk, thanks for posting! You'll find your own way of helping people understand (especially in Guatemala!). I think as humans we never fully understand most of what we see, even if we think we do.
