Dia de los Muertos is the Spanish translation of day of the dead. It originated in Mexico and is now more widely known across other countries. In celebration of the holiday, people remember and celebrate loved ones that have passed away. When I first got to the celebration I started watching the parade, which was filled with excitement and joy among the schools, organizations, and people participating in the parade.
On March 30, 2010, I interviewed Tara Ford, a lawyer at Pegasus Legal Services for Children about her views on social justice and why she chose to work with children. Tara has been working with children for years representing them in all walks of life. Her work expands from working with children that are in foster homes to children with disabilities.
What does the word disabled mean? Recently, I watched a video of a woman named Aimee Mullins giving a speech about the misconceptions of what the word means. I also want to say that this woman knows what she is talking about because she has a disability herself. I encourage you to watch the video that is apart of my blog to hear Ms. Mullins inspiring story.
