insights from everyday characters who overcame adversities that inadvertently
or unconsciously road-blocked their success. The real-life wisdom written in

childhood injury that caused her lifetime handicap and fostered the resentment
for the life she could never have. Discover how she (and you) can rise above
all hurdles through using your own approach of ableism to conquer and move

Nearing the end of the snow bank-lined block of Victorian homes,
which have been converted into offices for doctors and lawyers, Liz spots her
car, a white Elantra. The closer she gets to it, the angrier she becomes at
Rhonda, with her catlike green eyes, for refusing to help her. She regrets
asking Justin to introduce them and wishes she could just forget the whole
matter. After throwing her crutch in the back seat, she gets situated in the
driver’s seat only to find that she can’t see around the two vehicles boxing
her in, a red Jeep Cherokee and a black Ram truck. Given her physical
disability, she’s unable to twist her neck lest dizziness set in, so she slowly
starts to reverse watching through her rearview mirror, hoping there’s enough
space for her car to clear. She hears a thud; her left foot slams on the brake,
and the nightmare returns with the jolt.
She imagines: the freefall that lasts forever … the thump
of her body hitting concrete … warm liquid oozing … the color red.
She shudders, frozen in time and tied to a tragic injury by sounds and images
that have haunted her since early childhood.
