Disability Awareness Week

Disability is not a 'brave struggle' or ‘courage in the face of adversity’. Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.

“The Silver Scorpion is the brainchild of a group of young disability advocates from the U.S. and Syria. Brought together at the first international Youth Ability Summit in Damascus in August 2010, the attendees, who are all disabled, were asked to create a superhero who reflects what they have always wanted to see in a comic book.”

“None of the young people who helped create the Silver Scorpion suggested that he should use his power to cure his disability. “The Silver Scorpion is essentially empowered by who he is and doesn’t look at his superpower as a way of wishing he was something else,” says Snyder.” (Time)
