The world tried to take my light, and for a time, it succeeded. As a thirty-year-old adult, I remembered how to play, and I rediscovered the fire I had within. My dream is that our youth with physical disabilities don’t lose their light like I did.
It is my hope that the brightness inside every child glows freely without fear or hesitation. No matter their body, their identity, or their orientation I dream that all children can find compassion and love for every part of themselves and learn to celebrate their individuality.
Stand in your light, proudly child, for you have the power to illuminate your own path.
