Today is the disability day of mourning.
It breaks my heart that this has to be a thing.
But every day, people with disabilities are murdered. Their protectors become their perpetrators. They are murdered in the name of love and mercy.
And their murderers are never convicted.
Don’t tell me it doesn’t.
Don’t tell me to shut up.
I will fight like hell for the living and mourn the dead. I will fight like hell for their justice and I will remember their names. I will remember them. I will remember what they loved. And I will fight for them.
Why do we live in a world where this is okay?
