Journal 6 Disabilities
In the stories Mother Courage and Walk On i concluded that they both were very inspiring, and that the sky is the limit. both of these stories thought me that you can achieve anything in life as long as you are patient. The most memorable part from mother Courage was probably when Furlong impersonated as a doctor. "Most researchers and physicians will do anything to avoid meeting with distraught mothers, To get passed secretaries she would impersonate a doctor on the phone, then arrive at meetings dressed for the part".(pg.66) To me this was very brave she went above and beyond to help find a cure for this disease. In my high school days when I saw kids with disabilities I would always take the time to help them, whether if they dropped there books to helping them in the lunch line. According to the video Walk On DJ Gregory was told that he would never walk, but with hard work and dedication he left his footsteps on the golf course. These stories taught me that hardwork really pays off and that you should never undermine your full potencial.
