Subject: RE: songs about disabilities
Peter, Paul and Mary sang a very powerful song "Don't Laugh at Me," that deals with just about every discriminated minority you can think of (autism, homelessness, obesity, anorexia, etc) and choruses the plea:
"Don't laugh at me,
Don't call me names,
Don't get your pleasure from my pain;
In God's eyes were all the same,
Someday we'll all have perfect wings,
Don't laugh me."
I'm not much of a "God" person, but this song moves me tremendously.
