The speaker at our District-Wide meeting showed us this video on Monday. I've watched it 3 times since then because it's so moving. And wanted to cry like a baby each time.
As Mike Dagg said (much more eloquently of course) - sometimes the best gift you can give someone is helping them be (or accomplish) something they could not be or do on their own.... giving someone the tools they might not have access to other wise.... whether handicapped or not. As teachers we do that everyday, but I believe it applies to all relationships.
