Interview: Bonnie Jean Smith
I'm hoping to hear that, when they're working or dealing with a story of people with disabilities, that they'll look at the person and actually see the person and not the disability.
They don't have a voice. And they have all these people that say they're speaking for them when many of them can speak for themselves. And even if they don't use words, their behaviors will let you know.
I know they need a good story, but it is so important to get the truth, not just a good story. And, to me, that's the most important thing.
And once again, it goes back to looking at people as people first.
