Norman Kunc, who is my sister-in-law’s sister’s mother’s husband, was on Sounds Like Canada on CBC Radio this morning talking about disability. He’s a powerful speaker, with a good message; if you have a chance to hear him speak, you should take it.
The point he made that hit me most strongly was a suggestion that we need to learn how to see the intrinsic rather than comparative value in people. In other words, judge me for what’s inherently good (or bad) about me, not by comparing me to others. If we all did more of that, I think we’d all be happier.
Kudos to the Sounds Like Canada, by the way, for putting URLs in their daily show logs.
