Dreams are meant to be extravagant and daring. They’re meant to be fun, measurable and achievable. Some dreams are only dreams, but other dreams become reality. With the right amount of belief and support, dreams can be achievable and they can be reality… just ask Susan Boyle.
Boyle, who is Scottish, is the amazing singer that “became famous overnight after her audition for “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2009,” reported CNN. She has awed people with her beautiful voice and now has the opportunity to voice her own opinion as an individual living with a disability. At the age of 52, Boyle hopes that openly discussing her Asperger’s syndrome will help “lead people to understand and treat her better.” She quotes, “I am not strong on my own. When I have the support of people around me I am fine.”
Like Boyle there are many others living with a disability but they don’t let it slow them down. Children and adults with a disability are no different from you and me. Living with a disability is not easy. But through a variety of resources, Easter Seals helps people with all types of abilities get the right care they need, and focus on their abilities, talents, and strengths.
