This book tells us the wisdom that People with disability and without disability gain when they are together.
- Book Intro
People with disability and without disability shine when they are together.
Byungha asked a question while he was in the park for a walk. “Grandma, why did that boy come to this world?” The boy that Byungha pointed to was the one in a wheelchair. Grandmother told Byungha a story that Isaiah wrote 2700 years ago. This is a story about people with disability who look like “a weak sprout and root from a dry land when they are young, which make them look so fragile that even handling their body is risky and often is made fun of by people. People turn their heads away because of their appearance that beauty is nowhere to be found.”
The author shows children with disability around us with letters from teachers, friends and mothers. This book features the stories of Mihee who finished her potty training when she was 13, and Kyunghee who is learning how to swim with Cerebral palsy, Nobel laurate Pearl S. Buck’s daughter with disability, Kwon Jeongsaeng, the children book writer who suffered from poverty and illness, and Helen Keller who suffered from a lifetime of disability with her instructor Anne Sullivan. These stories reveal the everyday lives of people with disabilities where they have to fiercely fight for their lives. Concerns of Byungha starts with the Isaiah story who lived 2700 years ago and talks about the everyday lives of people with disabilities around us, hoping for a better world for everyone.
This book shows us a hope that a better life can be achieved when people with disability and without disability bond. Also, it makes us think why discrimination towards people with disabilities should be eliminated.
