Dwelling in Possibility

I plead guilty. I dwell in possibility for those with a disability. Am I naïve, sheltered from reality? Maybe. Or, do parents and mentors heed my call to be proactive in preparing youngsters for a new work world where disability as a negative is no longer relevant -- and that, in fact, disability is becoming a positive? My takeaway is that college students with a disability need to use their savvy to show employers they have a competitive edge as prospective employees precisely because they have learned to live well with vulnerability through creativity and persistence.
