Guest Posted June 8, 2006 Share Posted June 8, 2006 A Request On June 10th, it will be the 14th anniversary of My shooting & becoming paralyzed/disabled. I was hoping to be able to rewrite history and make this day take a brighter tone than the darker one that it is. No Matter how I try to avoid it, the day comes back to haunt me every year as I stay trapped in this metal chair with wheels. I would like to ask a request of you all. On June 10th, Please take a moment to take a step not just for me but for all the paralyzed/spinal cord injured/ people who wish they could take one single step. For Chris Reeve, the vision he had to help others find a cure for this horrible condition, for the children born with spinal degrading illness, scoliosis and for the every day person you may see in a wheelchair. Please take a step for us and think of the millions who are disabled in such a way. Not out of pity but fore the hopes of a day where disability will be a forgotten word. I hope you all will take that moment and step forward. Thank you. Eric Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
