So today Grandma and I went to lunch with my old bus attendant. It was so delightful to see her. I haven’t seen her in months. We went to a local café, but place that I absolutely love. We caught up on school, the holidays and more. She has a daughter that has a learning disability. She was always afraid to go back to school because she’s not a good test-taker. A friend of theirs offered to take a nursing class with her. The daughter took the class, passed and is going for her LPN.
She went on talking about the holidays. She had a good Christmas. We then went to Walmart and looked around. It was nice to see her. I’ve known her since third grade and we still keep in touch. I find it nice to have somebody to take me out. More people should do that. Not enough people get people with disabilities out and about. If more people got us out, we could socialize better. And people with learning disabilities shouldn’t feel discouraged about their futures. They might have to work a little harder, but they too can be successful. They just have to work a little harder. I have a physical disability and I got through a rough semester with minimal assistance. If I can do it, other people can do it too.
