Congratulations to all the winners-

The contest accomplished its goal of promoting original characters with a disability. Everyone will eventually either know someone or face managing a disability themselves, in their life.

As the guidelines of the contest pointed out, there are too few characters with disabilities; and, those characters who are disabled, are too often given miraculous cures.

This only deprives the characters and audience the opportunity of representing a large portion of the population.

As Helen Keller (1880-1968) wrote, “The welfare of each is bound up in the welfare of all.”  
-Out of the Dark, And Other Essays (1920)

“The test of a democracy is… the care given to the welfare of all the people.”
-“Try Democracy," in The Home Magazine (1935)
