--off topic-- I enjoyed the article about the young woman with spina bifida attending college there. I could relate to both having spina bifida and being a college student.
I had two students with mild forms of spina bifida. One could walk, but her knees were bowed, and she had to use a walker, but I was amazed how fast she could walk. The other could walk, run, jump, swim, ride horses, skip, play and lead a normal life. I was lucky to have them so I could learn more about spina bifida and how these kids need to be treated, not as freaks but as human beings with feelings and hopes and dreams like everyone else. I live for the day when difference is celebrated and not feared.
