I watched "Miracle On 34th Street" last night, like I try to do every year. And every year, even though I know what is going to happen with each scene in the movie, I find myself crying. Especially during the scene where a mother of a deaf little girl (Sammy) takes her daughter to see Santa and Santa uses sign language to communicate with the little girl.
Before Timmy was born, I could sit through movies like this and not shed a tear. No, wasn't and am not a cold hearted person. I believe it was because I never realized just how uncaring and cruel this World is to the disabled. Until a person is walking in the same shoes of a person, who is having to deal with and face the day-to-day care and struggles of a loved one, it is sometimes hard for those on the outside looking in to understand the cruelity and difficulties that the disabled individuals and their families face.
I was watching "Good Morning America" this morning and this news story really got to me as well.
Disabled Musicians Make Up Band 'Flame' - ABC News
Even though I'm the type of person, who perfers the original singers/bands to preform the original version of my favorite songs. These disabled individuals are pretty good.
I just hope that one day that their dreams of Making It To The Top comes True.
