A inspiration and a thruth forward bringing experience
I today saw this video about a girl named Jen who dispite her disability broke though. She is a fantastic girl and a real inspiration for all with handicaps. But not all with handicaps are as lucky to be able to break through their handicap. People with lung diseases have a handicap. No, you say? Well, they have. The definition of a handicap is
Lung diseases such as asthma among other, allergies, and other sensitivities is a handicap. How so? A handicap is defined:
“According to the Norwegian public reports,” NOU 2005: 8 of equality and accessibility. Legal protection against discrimination on grounds of disability. Defined disability as “Disability occurs when there is a gap between the individual’s abilities and design or function in surroundings / environment / buildings.” “
So when the indoor air is polluted by fragrance, scent, chemicals and other pollutants the room is no longer accessable.
So why this comparation with the persons with disability moving? First I have to say I do NOT say it is a easy life having no legs, have problem walking or lacking any lim and being disabled that way, They can many times (even if not everyone) get around it using a chair, or other help and pure will. I do see it can be a real problem having such disability. But for people with the disability lung disease is are handicaped in a way crusual for organs crusual for living. When you pollute the air we all shall breathe it makes the room unaccessable and we can not just jump around to get over it.
Some would say it is only to put on a mask. But there is a big problem with that. What if one need to eat, drink, or talk with someone? If you remove your mask you are not protected anymore.
This is a really truly ispiring girl and she is worth all the praise she can get, and I am glad for her that she found her sister and did so well in her sport.
I just want to put everything in perspective to make you see that even if some handicaps are relatively easy to overcome, not all are and sometimes you have to give to make it possible for others to join. Please go fragrane free, smoke free and vaping free so all with lung diseases and senstivities can jump too.
And if you get provoced by this, try to walk a mile in our shoes.
