EQUITY Feature Article — World Institute on Disability

EQUITY Feature Article — World Institute on Disability: "I observed government tour guides whose demeanor and conversational topics changed dramatically once we left the office or government car. Athlete briefings warning outright that every inch of the Olympic Village was under both visual and auditory surveillance. State department suggestions of topics to be avoided—Darfur and Tibet come rushing to mind—and taxi cab drivers’ unabashed terror at the idea of approaching the Village perimeter guarded by machine-gun-toting military.

Sometimes it is easy to forget that despite all the problems, as Americans we enjoy unraveled freedoms and opportunities."

Ok, so I am in love with the author- but isn't this an awsome article!
