Never Underestimate Them: The Story of Disabled People
By: Ms. Musa, S. N. N. & Ms. Shariffuddin, N. L.
Imagine being born without arms and legs. No arms to hug the one you love, no legs to move around and no way to lift or carry things. How would you feel if you were one of them? As we all know, “World-wide, disabled people have experienced social and economic discrimination, segregation and exclusion” (Turmusani, 2003, p. 21). Very few employers hire disabled people because they considered disabled people as a liability more than an asset in the organization. Disabled people should be treated just like normal people because they have feelings too. However, we do not need to fear about this matter anymore. Nowadays, people with disabilities are able to live their lives like other normal human beings. In fact, some of them are more successful in their lives than ordinary people. The extraordinary people who have survived in their life even they are not perfect like others are Nick Vujicic, Oscar Pictorius and Qian Hong Yan.
