Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Credit Where Credit is Due

I’ve been inspired recently by an awesome woman named Kathie Snow.

Kathie Snow is an amazing disability advocate. She has written many articles, a book, and also travels the world as a speaker. The first resource packet (reading material) I received from Partners in Policymaking was stuffed to the brink with Kathie’s articles.

Kathie has opened my eyes to the importance of language, the effects of language, and the importance of full inclusion. Many of my recent thought processes have been heavily influenced by Kathy.

Please go check out her site Disability Is Natural and give her stuff a look-see. She is amazing, inspiring, and thought-provoking.

You know, Sarah, I bet people feel that way about you, too.
