NDSS: Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act

A Personal Response to the ABLE Act from The Sqeaky Wheelchair

An excerpt:

I am a person with a disability. I am a student who works hard every day, and plans to graduate with honors. I am a person with big ideas, anxious to change the world. I would love to someday own an apartment, or even a house, to take a vacation, and to raise children of my own. I shouldn’t have all of that in jeopardy if I want to keep the supports that I rely on every day. In addition to all of these things, I am an American, and I want to believe again, with the same youthful hope we instill in our kindergartners when we teach them about the Fourth of July, that everything waiting for a hard-working person without a disability is also waiting for me. Dear Mr. President, dear Congressperson, dear friend, dear neighbor, dear fellow human being… Make me believe again. I know we can do it together.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the thought of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.

    Therefore that’s why this paragraph is perfect.
