Painful Memories of a Prize for Kindness

Jun 20, 2012, 04:21 PM

In this episode, I share a rather painful experience when I learned that my best friend was awarded a prize for ''helping' me which is awarded every year in Malta to promote the values of solidarity and friendship between non-disabled children and their disabled peers. But, I think that the organisers need to rethink the whole idea of awarding such a prize in today's world as such an award fails to consider the effects the prize would have on these friendships while emphasising differences rather than equality and inclusion. #childhood #difference #disability #friendships #GordonGD #inclusion #inequality #Malta #rights #solidarity
