A while ago, I started getting frustrated with some of the things that I was hearing people saying about people with disabilities. I didn’t like hearing people in my community referred to as “residents” or “the disabled”. These are my friends. These are my brothers and sisters. I just wanted everyone to be equal, for each one of us to be given a fair chance, to be treated as worthy human beings. I don’t like there being “us” versus “them. …I vented to those around me and to the Lord. He answered my questions with one word. The word that God kept bringing to mind was “honour”…both as a verb and as a noun. So I started to think about what this word meant. What does it mean to honour someone? What does it mean to give someone honour? And what does it mean to take away somebody’s honour?
