Thank you for including this here. As the parent of a child with severe cognitive and physical disabilities, it's good to be reminded of how hard people fought for the most basic rights. We try to continue this fight and need the encouragement as it's sometimes overwhelming to persevere --

People with disability should have the right to freedom and should be respected. http://www.nmeda.com/
