Letters: Accessible Christianity

by Stephen Nelms 06-08-2015

I wish to thank Susan Windley-Daoust for her article β€œBeyond the Wheelchair Ramp” (May 2015). As someone born with right-side paralysis in the 1940s, I know the frustration of being thought of as less by the general population. My parents were told that I would never walk and never be able to care for myself, and that I would likely be β€œretarded.” But my parents did not listen to those warnings and gave me the opportunity for as normal of a life as anyone else.
