Normal. Not Normal.

“Normal” people are happiness and laughter. Depressed and trouble. Anger and hatred. Regret and sorrow.
But “not normal” people are missing something. We might have a crutch, be blind, deaf, in a wheelchair, or brain injuries. I have Aphasia, which means reading, writing and listening are easier but speaking is hard. Speaking is different and slow. “Normal” people are free conversation and gossip but I am just slow—slowing my word difficult process what to mean.

Shemer said, “forward, not backwards.” It’s true. Sometimes, I said, “before Choice… before boyfriend… before Ascend…” But the moment is “now”. The moment is “forward”.

We are “Disable” but we are “not normal”. We are incredible. We are invincible. We are people.
