As I suggest in my blog yesterday, accessibility has been steadily improving for disabled people for the last 40 years, as well as having more rights an improved attitudes. It is now time for disabled people to begin ‘returning the favour’ and start paying back to society by taking the opportunities provided to them and taking responsibility for their actions.
I am fed up of hearing from ‘activists’ how bad things are because they are not getting their own way since we have never had it so good. Disabled people are on the verge on full inclusion and equality but they must do their part and let go of the past and embrace the future. I sadly fear that many disabled people are not able or willing to do this and society is now waiting for them to catch up.
