  •  Most of us are weird in our own ways. (6+ / 0-)

    Most of us do not have a visible disability, but sooner or later, most of us do something or have something that makes us vulnerable to ridicule or sideways glances, which is all the more reason to teach compassion and acceptance.

    Probably my most "conspicuous" time of life was during pregnancy.  Complete strangers would gawk or blurt out inappropriate questions about my relationship with my husband or want to touch my stomach without asking.  Hey, how about meeting me and getting to know me first?  On the other hand, it's unrealistic to expect people to not stare a little bit at something that is unusual to them.  

    Perhaps my wish is that people take an interest and appreciate the differences between people, but not be so judgmental as to be closed-minded.

    A Wall Street "bonus" should not be more than what my house is currently worth.
