Disability Awareness Month

If we talked about disabilities the stigma will lessen.  I say little because it would be a miracle for the stigma to disappear. Unfortunately, we live in a society that for the most part is focused on itself. This morning I retweeted a story about a Podcaster who went on a rant about having disabled people in ads as ridiculous. She went on but I haven’t heard any backlash.

She’s someone who needs an education. 

This is the 28th Year the United States has recognized and celebrated March as National Disability Awareness Month!
On February 26, 1987 President Ronald Reagan officially declared Proclamation 5613 making March National Disabilities Awareness Month.  The proclamation called for people to provide understanding, encouragement and opportunities to help persons with disabilities to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
Everyone wants, and deserves, to enjoy life, feel productive and secure. But in March, we take extra steps to raise awareness about the supports and rights of the people with disabilities and to celebrate their contributions to our communities and society as a whole!
Thank goodness many organizations are advocating for the disabled and you can see what charitable organizations can provide support.

I wish you the best.





  1. Thank you for sharing this post and information about Disability Awareness Month. As a disabled woman myself, I am thinking of writing a piece on my blog about what it’s like to live life as a wheelchair user and about my daily life. It’s good timing that I read your post, as it’s spurred me on to write this before the end of March. When I publish it, I will also share it on our Survivors Blog, too. Thanks, Melinda. I hope you are doing well. X 🌷
