People with and without disabilities make a western!

Just came across this neat documentary about an annual camp where people with and without disabilities come together to make an original narrative film. They’ve finished filming and are currently in the edit stage. Take a look at their 4-minute video for more info.

I think all of these videos are ineicdrbly powerful. I recently attended a ceremony honoring the work of an organization that provides services for individuals with disabilities. A series of awards were given out to individuals with disabilities who had excelled in their places of employment. It was really nice to attend an evening dedicated to the accomplishments of individuals with disabilities, not only to honor their efforts, but to allow for discussion and awareness in the community. I think that many people don’t give very much thought to the difficulties facing individuals with disabilities as they search for jobs. It was nice to attend the ceremony I did, but it was only one evening of celebration, and the need for greater awareness in my own community is still very high. These videos, especially, Meet Sue do a great job of reminding viewers that we are all people, and we all deserve a fair chance to achieve our goals and support our families.
