What determines the worth of a person?
I don't remember the source but I remember the quote: "Every time a new disability comes knocking, I ask 'Death, is this you?' So far, the reply has always been, 'Nonsense, it's just me."
The great French poet Paul Claudel wrote on his birthday: "Eighty years old. No eyes left. No ears, no teeth, no legs, no wind, and, when all is said and done, how astonishingly well one does without them."
I do not treat disabilities lightly--mine, yours or anyone else's--it's just that that it is not what determines the worth of a person.
