A very inspiring message. I'm very sorry to learn of your injury, but sometimes all we can do is make the best of things regardless-- and that's exactly what you do. Smiley Happy

 

Keep up the great work you do through Home, Jer. Smiley Wink

poor you thanx for sharing BLAH BLAH


Disabilities, we all have them or will get them one day. No one is immune from the impact of disabilities personally and in society. The range of disabilities is wide and all encompassing; from birth defects, accidents, learning issues, emotional imbalances, chemical dependencies, health issues, etc. If you are able bodied and sound of mind currently, count yourself blessed. Smiley Happy Yes I said BLESS

 

Many people who do not understand disabilities react negatively to those who have them. They react with fear, anger, pity, or just running away. And that is one of the beauties of Home and online Forums. You cannot see my disability nor can you differentiate me from others unless I tell my story. So many times people will get to know me before they know about my disability or anything else that superficially differentiates me from you. 

 

Home is a unique place where we can all interact as ourselves or choose to be whatever fantasy and whatever merchandise is available allows us to be. Our community is diverse including all walks, ages, genders, LGTBs, disabled, races, etc. You name something that differentiates us and you are not able to detect this difference by an avatar. As we are never certain that the avatar accurately represents the person. 

 

It takes a very brave person like Jersquall to tell his story. Especially because he could have hidden behind his avatar and no one would have ever been the wiser. Anyone who questions his motives as seeking attention or looking for pity, just doesn't get it. Jersquall shares his story, because he truly cares about the Home and gaming community that has given him so much. A leader often risks personal exposure to help nudge us along to a better place. Thank you Jersquall for being that leader. Thank you for reminding us that differences among us do not need to divide us, but can make us stronger. Mur

As a relative newcomer to the forums (lurking time not included hehe), Jers, your personality, wisdom, and advice to others helped me to set a tone for how I wanted to express myself here. It probably sounds silly, but everytime I see your name on a comment I lean a little closer in, as if I will 'hear' the words a little more clearly. Haha. I have often wondered what fires of experience or hardship a man would have to be forged in to produce a personality almost immediately recognizable through as impersonal a medium as text. I guess this story begins to answer that question for me. Thank you for sharing it.

You have a great personality here Smiley Happy I don't think everyone who post's here is a true representation of who they are. It's a small percent I am sure but the forums and a high percent that post are the way they post. that said, There are some real people persons here. like yourself. Like myself. Sure things are hard sometimes. They are for all of us. You deal, it get's better. wash, rinse, repeat. If you learn something from diversity you are that much better for it. With the forums and  the inclusion of different types of people, lifestyles and different thoughts we can all learna lot from eachother. Sometimes in a single thread.
