“Acceptance to me means being able to coexist in a world with people of all abilities without question. It means the fight is over. The fight that people with disabilities go through every day for simple things like getting a glass of water or going to a restaurant with friends. The fight that we have to constantly explain why we need extra time in the restroom or needing a straw to drink from. Acceptance means being open minded in the sense that the way you live your life isn’t going to be the same from the person sitting next to you.

Acceptance means to take a second and learn to educate ourselves, for ourselves, in order to understand others. Acceptance starts within yourself.” - Sawsan
