Climb Every Mountain

The title of this post is also of a song found in the movie the sound of music. I chose this as the basis of this post as I am soon to embark on my journey as a public speaker and wanted to share a story with you.

Circa 2000 I was in grade nine and my church as was tradition went splunking as was the norm the minister decided that I should be as included as much as was functionally and humanly possible.

So after some convincing I was off being carried over a nearby escarpment – I was in true essence one of the gang that day. It was a trip to not be forgotten for many years to come

Making splunking accessible, how is that possible?

Well, I was carried, yes carried by my peers and leaders in an adapted wheelchair (rickshaw) I got to see this which I wouldn’t have seen otherwise

Thank you to those who so many years later made that trip possible

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
