This week’s column is about unification. There has been a lot of news about our country’s divisions. It is time for us to start bringing people back together again.

People with disabilities have a long and sad history of being put aside and disregarded. We know that is an awful feeling, so let’s follow the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We can start our country’s unification process right here in our own communities. We need to look at what we have in common with our neighbors and fellow community members. We may have more in common than we realize.

Reach out to each other in kindness and hope it is met with kindness in return. When someone throws things up that you don’t agree with, don’t get angry. Try to overcome that feeling by changing the subject or agreeing to disagree. Look for opportunities to be kind. It is difficult for everyone to have the threat of the COVID virus hanging over our heads; no one needs all this hate on top of that.

Let’s all do our part to pull our communities together. As Martin Luther King, Jr., once said: “We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

Love, Shari
