I have traveled the world, from the Antarctic to zero gravity. </br>(Stephen Hawking)Ive had tons of bullies who would call me retarded, even on my Facebook page. Its sad and it really hurts. I want to tell people not to use the word. Dont say your friends retarded when they do something foolish. If you have a disability, keep working hard. Whatever it takes, do it, and dont be mean to people. </br>(Lauren Potter)The national nonprofit I founded, KaBOOM!, is on a mission to save play for Americas children, and has long been championing the cause in high-need communities. </br>(Darell Hammond)Labor should not be about creating monuments on hills or statues in parks.

Well, disability is part of diversity. </br>(Thomas Perez)
