RESPECT DIFFERENCES – EQUALITY FOR ALL

313

Everyday, we bear witness that the barriers created in mind materialise in the barriers preventing our fellow citizens to move freely in the streets or to enter a school, health centre, court of law, cinema and all other health care, educational, cultural, republic or municipal institutions because they live with disabilities. And to make a positive change, it only takes to exercise greater responsibility and commitment towards our own community in order to provide equal access for all to all services. Showing respect and being human to our neighbours is the only road to a prosperous society.
