Respect for the Disabled
Today when I visited the ‘Build a Bear Workshop’, which is a company that allows children to make their own teddy bears, dress them and give them props, I was very pleased to see a wheel chair made for a teddy bear. Children should be made aware of disability. They should be told that disabled people should be treated with the same amount of respect as everybody else even though their bodies might not be as able as theirs. Toys could be used to demonstrate that all people are different from each other whether they are disabled or not. Disabled people should be valued for what they are.
