Recently while sick I spent a great deal of time watching the television. I stumbled upon an older show entitled “Sue Thomas FB Eye.” I found it fascinating particularly that the writers chose a deaf girl for the lead who worked for the FBI. The utilization of her skills were amazing. She made friends easily who slowly learned sign language. Her ability to read lips was of great benefit in solving cases for the FBI. What I really liked was that she did have a disability but she was treated as if she didn’t have one. There are many individuals in life who have learned to cope with disabilities. They have discovered how to live on their own, drive a car, and work at various jobs. They are now part of the individuals of the at home workforce. Everyone should always be treated with respect and appreciated for their skills. There are many high tech individuals whose skills are unmatched to the people who go into the office everyday. Appreciating each person’s skill is important. When I went to the labs this morning for tests, there was a woman in front of me with a cane. A man approached and hit the door open button. He was rude in my opinion as he just cut in front of the woman while I held the door. She appreciated it and said thank you. I wonder if the man’s mother, if she saw his behavior would be ashamed of him. If he was my son I would have been. My son, however, does have excellent manners. In the Good Gus series the only disabled person was Katie who was in a wheelchair. I decided she should be the young reader’s age so they would understand better. In the stories Katie has a best friend and is treated equally. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
