Blogging Against Disablism

I was reading Kathryn's blog about "May 1 is Blogging Against Disablism Day: my two sense" which I have learned about this program. So, I joined.

A gang of youths beat and tortured a disabled man to death for "sport", a court heard today. From Kathryn's blog,Black Arm Bands for Brent Martin" I have seen how the violence that disabled people had to go through. I remember growing up, I was experiencing the same thing with those bullies who thinks disabled kids are nothing to them. There's a lack of education from the school system as well as from their parents about disabled people. Ignorance often is the blame.
