Being A Normal Person Living in the world, everyone
dreams of being great and wise. Have some of us ever dreamt of being a normal person? I’m sure that most people will answer “No”, an
d you’ll question, “Why do you ask such a silly question?” As a matter of fact, people who are disabled just wish that they themselves would one day be a healthy and normal person as us.
Questions 1.Are equal rights important for you?
2.Can you have equal rights in your daily life?
Why should disabled people be treated equally
People who live with disabilities are always considered shameful, for it was difficult for them to manage to do the daily affairs that we take for granted. In fact, they have no differences from us expect their disabilities which are formed because of inborn deficiency or unfortunate accidents. At present, a large quantity of the blind is learning the traditional Chinese treatment, such as massage and acupuncture. And after opening a shop, they can usually get well paid. Some people without arms have learned writing with their feet. What’s more, people with a moving handicap can do work very well, even if they can only move their head and mouth. Not to mention Hawking Helen Keller Sang Lan for example.
Special Protection is also very Important
In fact , for disabled people , equal rights sometimes are guaranteed by special protections . If we carefully observe , we can find that the design of many facilities is inconvenient for disabled people. In the hotel , for instance , it seemed that the width of the door was not as wide as that of the wheelchair. The service counter was too high for the people in wheelchairs to reach. The counter as well as the phones was in so high a position that it couldn’t be reached by people in wheelchairs. Except these, the stairs were one of the inconvenient facilities for the disabled , the disabled were unable to get to another floor unless others offered help. Not only facilities , many provisions of law also do not show special protections for the disabled.
Chen Yan And Her Guide Dog Jenny
Chen Yan is the first blind piano tuner in China . She is famous not only for her success career as a disabled people , but also for the great job she and her guide dog Jenny have done . As we know , guide dogs are still not allowed to go to public places like banks and buses in China because they are considered as pets. As a result of these misunderstandings , Chen Yan and Jenny have faced a lot of refuse . Even with a guide dog , places blind people can go are still limited .
Chen Yan And Her Guide Dog Jenny
In order to change the situation for the blind , Chen Yan decided to use Weibo to tell their story , and let people know more about their life . Her great work has changed many people’s minds . Now more and more people stand out to support the idea that guide dogs should be allowed to go to most public places. I believe that what Chen Yan has done is meaningful . I hope that one day I can see guide dogs in buses with us .
Every member of society has the right to a reasonable quality of life, including the disabled. As society develops, we have the responsibility to offer equal access as well as special protections. Only in this way are the disabled able to live productive and meaningful lives as we do.
