Ideals OnWheels

I was born in 1970 with a disability called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It has weakened my muscles through out my body my entire life, slowly worsening with age. Since childhood I have sought linkages between my predicaments that seem to stem from my disability and other peoples' predicaments that stem from being human. I have alway tried to help others just as much as they help me-- a lot. I am a constant student but not matriculating, work in public policy, and love God. Courage is change.

The two hours I spent helping this stranger by writing this essay gave me as much satisfaction as any other volunteer work I do.


God, I know I'm not supposed to walk. Please don't answer Mommy's prayer. I am not supposed to walk.
