Tell Us Your Story: How You Rose Above Disability
There is no such thing as disability, just 'this-ability.'
Helen Keller once said "Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light." She was an amazing example of a person who regarded her physical disabilities as advantages rather than weaknesses and therefore saw no limit to what she could achieve.
‘Disability’ means many things to many people. The disabled/differently abled population encompasses a variety of physical conditions such as blindness, deafness, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, attention deficit disorder, and depression. There are many more. But as plenty of people with disabilities know, it’s a mistake to confuse disability with inability.
Beliefnet wants to put together a collection of stories and photographs of people with disabilities and faith. We want to hear your stories of inspiration and courage. Maybe you'll find yourself in an upcoming feature on Beliefnet!
What To Do:
1. Write your story.
2. Find photos that help tell it.
