“Roll” for our Lives

 

The woman in this photo is Karina Vargas. She is in a wheelchair because she was shot eight years ago at her high school, in a drive-by shooting.

Although she writes that “not one moment goes by where I don’t wish I could walk,” she has  been able to use her misfortune as rallying cry to advocate gun control. And she was right there last weekend with the other marchers, to protest the shameful state of gun violence in our country.

Read her CNN editorial below.

I am an attorney with a disability, and I co-teach a class on disability law. But because laws are just words, I would like to learn and convey more of the real world of living with a disability in the 21st Century.
