Paul Chamberlain, Speaking of Normal

All of this means that human beings – because of their very nature or essence – ought to be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion – all of them, regardless of their age, race, gender, or ability to function “normally.” It is our divinely-given human nature – not how much we can contribute  to society , how well we can function physically or mentally, how healthy we are, or how optimistic our prognosis is – that gives us our unique value.

About ryan85

A son, a brother, a husband, a father of eight, and a friend. A follower of Jesus Christ. A fan of the Seminoles and all teams Atlanta. I write, I read, and teach when I can. I prefer red pens. I'm easily distracted. I've lived in Augusta, GA, northern Minnesota, the beautiful western NC mountains, and Tallahassee, FL - Go 'Noles. I played football for FSU, was on the national championship team in 1999, and took a few snaps with the Pittsburgh Steelers. My favorite colors are fluorescent yellow, and Garnet & Gold. I drive a minivan and think it's cool.
