On July 26, 1990, US President George Bush signed the world’s first civil rights law for people with disabilities. Since its signing in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act has served as legal protection for equal opportunity in all aspects of life, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for people with disabilities.
Hear these words of L’Arche founder Jean Vanier: “People may come to our communities because they want to serve the poor; they will only stay once they have discovered that they themselves are the poor.”
Lord, thank you for using the foolish to confound the wise and the weak ones to shame the strong. Help us live with the shrewdness of serpents and the innocence of doves. Keep our feet from fatigue, our spirits from despair, and our hands from failing to rise in praise to you. Amen.
