    Disability Day, or the International Day of People with Disability, is a day that has been promoted by the United Nations since 1992. The aim of Disability Day is to encourage a better understanding of people affected by a disability, together with helping to make people more aware of the rights, dignity and welfare of disabled people.

    As well as raise awareness about the benefits of integrating disabled persons into every aspect of life, from economic, to political, to social and cultural. Disability Day is not concerned exclusively with either mental or physical disabilities, but rather encompasses all known disabilities, from Autism to Down Syndrome to Multiple Sclerosis.

    It's also Tuesday :hattip:

    He said “Spelling”.
    But on a more serious note . My bro wasn’t disabled, until a 70 year old toss pot that shouldn’t have been driving, pulled straight out on his mate in front, running him over and killing him, only for my bro, who was behind his mate on another motor bike, to slam into the side of him.Watch put people.
