Group Works To Bust Barriers

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS--Sydney Case and her friends have a message for people with disabilities: When you stop moving, you start dying. Don't wallow in self-pity.
Their message for the rest of the world: "The main thing is that the disabled are just like you."
Case, who uses a wheelchair because of a spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis, voiced those messages recently with her friends before students from Hendrix College and the University of Central Arkansas.
"The underlying message is that we are all alike on the inside, even if we don't show it on the outside," said Case, who has started a dance troupe of performers with disabilities called "Barrier Busters".
