As we celebrate the man who was instrumental in writing the Civil Rights Act, which was signed in 1964 to benefit all Americans, there is still one group of citizens who are waiting for this act to benefit them. These are the 56 million Americans with disabilities who are still waiting to participate in a mainstream society. However, because of the 64 act, steps have been made to address this issue.

International Day of Tolerance Tagged with:

Activity during the Fall

Activity during the Fall Tagged with:

In my 35 years as a quad amputee physical activity has been the main reason for my weight maintaining a consistent variable. This has been advantages for me staying active. The problem at times has been trying to find the time, activities or just exercises in general to maintain and advance my physical fitness. With over 54 million people with disabilities and only a few being physically fit, I fall into a category in which secondary health conditions can be an issue as I advance in my age. Hence, it is imperative that I develop, maintain and increase my physical fitness regimen.
