A Road to Me

A Road to Me is about the individualize path each person takes in life. When it comes to the disability population, too often people try to use a one-size-fits-all model without taking consideration of the person. This is where so many problems arise. Everyone has a specific path to navigate through life so it is vitally important to take the time to address both a person’s wants and needs.

Roads also intersect with different paths. On the road of life, these paths may be sexuality or special interests or spirituality or various other aspects of a person’s life.

We must view issues through a multifaceted lens in order to better understand the struggles faced by

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

-Robert Frost, 1916
