Seeing the BBC headline this morning made me think, 2022 and it still goes on! Will people ever be educated enough to understand we all have different needs.

    @TonyCH Hello there!

    I'd not heard this story, what a shocker. And yep it sums up that there's still a way to go for disablist attitudes to change.

    Here's a link to the BBC news article about it for those interested.

    I wish, and hope, that one day people will understand that we all have different needs!
