Our Moral Imperative

STOP, for just a few, precious moments. Take a deep breath from wherever you are in the hubbub of human traffic and noise.

Ask yourself out loud…

“Is there anything more important than for each of us to assure our well being and the well being of everything we live with on the planet?

“How much work must we, the collective, do to assure that each of us prospers in maximum health – regardless of our condition?”

I don’t know how much work (it’s a lot) but I know that our emphasis – yea, our moral imperative, should be on the very thing that unites e-a-c-h-a-n-d-e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e-o-f-u-s-h-e-r-e-o-n-e-a-r-t-h.

The emphasis should be placed upon the biggest “Ah-ha.”

We are – one and all – only temporarily able.

No escaping it – things change in the blink of an eye; in every split-second it happens, all around us – to a husband, a wife, a brother or a sister-in-law. At some point in time, to every one of our daughters or sons and our Moms and Pops, and to Nanas and Pappas, as well as to our best buddies, as well as to us.

It happens all over the world and right in front of us. We see it every day but sometimes we fail to look closely.

Health is our species’ lowest common denominator.

We are here to attest to the brevity of it all – perfect health and a body that athletically serves us a lifetime – it is yanked from us in an instant in seemingly-infinite ways.

There is no escaping it anyplace on earth.

And because it’s indisputable that this is so, we focus on the human condition – enabling it, freeing it, and doing everything we can think of, to douse it in good health.

Not to go all “invasion of the body-snatchers” on you or anything, but…

Join us because it is inevitable that you will join us, sooner or later.

Sincerely yours,

The Community of People with Disabilities and their families.

P.S. The ELF says “ditto.”
