Disability Day: A Holiday to Celebrate Everyone Regardless of Differences

Disability Day: A Holiday to Celebrate Everyone Regardless of Differences

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to publish a post in one hour. Here is tonight's challenge:

"Create a new holiday, or holidays, that you believe should exist."

This can be about anything and take place anywhere, it can be another traditional holiday, a food holiday, Congressional gridlock holiday, metaphysical holiday, Bieber holiday, world holiday, whatever you can conceive. It can be one holiday that you go into a great amount of detail about, or a list of five to 10 holidays with briefer descriptions.

The point of this exercise is to do it no matter what so don’t bail. Be creative, enjoy the process. Use words, images or video. Whatever you need to tell your story.

Be aware of the time. No matter when you finish, please wait until 10 p.m. to publish. Above all, please respect the deadline.

You have one hour.

My new holiday is called: Disability Day.

Disability Day would be held during the summer, simply because everyone is happier during the summer months.  This day would allow those with wheelchairs or maybe the ones that look normal, but inside are hurting, the opportunity to live an easy life.

On Disability Day, anyone with limitations would automatically go first without even considering otherwise.  Those around the disabled would be interested and helpful and no judgment would be made.  It simply would be human helping human.

On this new holiday, everyone would automatically hold doors for those that are moving a little slower for our usually busy schedules.

Although called Disability Day, the open heartedness would expand to accepting those regardless of race, religious or political difference as well.  You would notice respect and love as you walk around with a nice sense of peace and acceptance.

This summer day is one where the world could come together, regardless if you are sick, healthy, standing, sitting, black, white or purple and smile, listen and love one another.

Can you think of a better day than that?
