The New York Times published the first article in a weekly series about people who live with disabilities. Approximately 1 in 5 people in the U.S. live with a disability. The author reflects on her own personal experience and helps to frame ways to think about disability as a common part of being human. She invites everyone to act - people with disabilities must learn how to effectively live and people without disabilities must seek to understand the challenges that can accompany a disability.
