Disability and the Inauguration

I checked in on a friend's blog today (Becs Again), and found this entry about remembering the fulfill the civil rights of other groups at the inauguration, amidst discussions of "post-racial America": A Soapbox Moment.

Then, I did a Google search, and at a cool blog called Media dis&dat came up with this great post: Wheelchair Users Pre-Test Access for Presidential Inauguration.

I'm taking the day off to watch the inauguration of Barack Obama -- a day that I could only fervently hope for a year ago.

Please also check out It was through William Peace's blog that I first learned of difficulties accessing various Obama campaign headquarters and the inauguration.

Did you see Cheney being carried down the steps? *snark*

Many thanks for making a truthful effort to explain this. I feel fairly strong about this and would like to read more.
If it’s OK, as you learn more in depth knowledge, would you mind posting more articles
similar to this one with more information.

When we think of childcare for a child with disabilities, many of the considerations are the same as any other child. There are few things more in line with the training of specialists or medical needs of a child. Thanks to Obama for taking the steps towards disabled children. Although millions of people around the world who are not getting proper care and treatment in society, but still live with, fight and overcome their disabilities every day of their lives. Unfortunately, there will probably always be tyrants around the world. Hope that the current emphasis on the theme will help to change the things.
