ABSTRACT
Opinion. During the 1970s, the disabled tried to become another minority, but as they became more political, they became less visible. People must not forget the people behind the label, whatever the current label may be. The disabled aren't just cute kids to feel sorry for; they grow into adults with needs and feelings just like anyone else. Personal observations.
