Those who are mocking persons with disability are those don’t think tomorrow and the future. Able-bodied people need to know that they can become any form of disabilities yes they can.
If you know that all human beings are gifted from God then why will u mocking persons with disability? Imagine you mocking persons with disability today, tomorrow you become disabled through fall sickness or accident. Will you mocking yourself again?
