A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.
/William Arthur Ward/
The 3rd of December has been picked out by the United Nations to celebrate over one billion people who live with some form of disability. This day has been commemorated since 1992. The theme for this year, "Break Barriers, Open Doors: For An Inclusive Society And Development For All" addresses how persons with disabilities face physical, social,economic and attitudinal barriers that exempt them from taking part fully and effectively as equal members of society worldwide.
