  •  Great diary - good luck with campaign! (6+ / 0-)

    I think you're right that a lot of us are uncomfortable because the explanations of "God made him that way" are inadequate. It lets people off the hook in one way but messes with their conceptions of body and self in another.

    Shit does happen. As do accidents like the one that shattered my friend's leg. He was "lucky" in that he had health insurance and a job he could eventually get back too. But also lots of pain and therapy and the news you don't want to hear that it won't be like it was before.

    I admit it brought some things home to me. Like the need for universal design, along with universal health care. And plenty of families like yours have been dealing with these issues from Day One. It's thank to people like you we have seen as much progress as we have.

    I think you're gonna do just fine in politics. Thanks for sharing the diary.
