I have a seven-year old sister who has cerebal palsy and it seems like every time we go to the store or something like that people eather stare or rush away from her or they go out of their way to be nice (witch is better than better than being mean) like she needs help or can't do anything onher own. But to me physically challenged people are stronger than "regular" people because they are always strong and deal with these things. I know I would probably break down after being treated the she gets treated sometimes. I also think that she has all the information in the universe in her head. People think that because she is physically challenged that she is dumb and doesn't know anything but, she is one of the sweatest little girls in the world. She probably knows more than and "regular" person knows. I sometimes go to this "club type" thing called sib shops and it are for people who have friends or family who is physically challenged. You like talk about your family/friends who are pysically challenged.
