I grew up with many phisically challenged friends. I saw no problem being friends with them, I found it easier to get along with them since they were non-judgemental. I would get looks from others when I was with those friends, but I didn't care. The disabled face a lot of challenges and it's best that they have good friends to be there along the way.

I am handicapped myself. I have many handicapped friends. It is wrong for those to hate you just because you can't "be" like them. Our handicaps may become problems but they also are our blessings (who wants to be normal anyway xox)

I think it is sad if people hate you for being handicapped. And if they do hate you, then they are hardly deserving of being called your friends. I don't think friendship is capable of hatred at all. Speaking for myself, friendship is a bonding of souls and physical ability or lack of it is completely irrelevant. To me no friend is handicapped, as long as he or she has me as a friend. Otherwise, my friendship is meaningless. Since I am a poet, I express myself best in verse. Here is a little piece I wrote...specially for you... A Cripple: Unable to move, frozen in eternity, it needs guidance. The gentle touch, to hold and take it, to its destiny. It depends entirely on you and I, for it's incapable of action on its own. Give careful thought to where you take it, for in its silence it will bring tomorrow. The future after all, is a cripple. (c) Tushar
