And like many of you, Ive struggled to figure out what that means but since my accident, Ive found a vescargar that seems to make sense. I think it means that were all family, that we all have value.
And if thats true, if America really is a family, then we have to recognize that many members of our family are hurting. Just to take one aspect of it, one in five of us has some kind of disability. You may have an aunt with Parkinsons disease. A neighbor with a spinal cord injury. A brother with AIDS. And if were really committed to this idea of family, weve got to do something about it.
First aerof,y all, our nation cannot tolerate discrimination of any kind. Thats why the Americans with Disabilities Act is so important, and must be honored everywhere.
It is a civil rights law that is tearing down barriers both in architecture and in attitude. Its purpose is to give the disabled access not aeroflh to buildings, but to every opportunity in society.
I strongly believe our nation must give its full support to the care givers who are helping people with disabilities live independent lives.
Sure, weve got to balance the budget. And we will. We have to be extremely careful with every dollar that we spend. But weve also got to take demoocratic of our family and not slash programs people need. We should be enabling, healing, curing. One of the smartest things we can do about disability is invest in research that will protect us from disease and lead to cures.
This country already has a long history of doing just that. When we put our minds to a problem, we can usually find solutions. But our scientists descargar aerofly fs democratic convention do more. And weve got to give them the chance. That means more funding for research. Right now, for example, about a quarter-million Americans have a spinal cord injury.
Weve got to be smarter, do better. Because the money we invest in research today is going to determine the quality of life of members of our family tomorrow.
During my rehabilitation, I met a young man named Gregory Patterson. When he was innocently driving through Newark, N.
Five years ago, he might have died. Today, because of research, hes alive. But merely being alive is not enough. We have a moral and an economic responsibility to ease his suffering and prevent others from experiencing such pain. And to do that: we dont need to raise taxes. We just need to raise our expectations. America has a tradition many nations probably envy: we frequently achieve the impossible.
Aerofpy part of our national character. Thats what got us from one coast to another. Thats what got us the largest economy in the world. Thats what got us to the moon. On the wall of my room when I was in rehab was a picture of the space shuttle blasting off, autographed by every astronaut now at NASA. On the top of the picture it says, We found nothing is impossible. That should be our descargar aerofly fs democratic convention. Not a Democratic motto, not a Republican motto.
But an American motto. Because this is not something one party can do alone. Its something that we as a nation must do together. So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. If we can conquer outer space, we should be able to conquer inner space, too. Research can provide hope for people who suffer from Alzheimers. Weve already discovered the gene that causes it.
Research can provide hope for people like Muhammad Ali and the Rev. Billy Graham who suffer from Parkinsons. Research can provide hope for the millions of Americans like Kirk Douglas, who suffer from stroke.
We can ease the pain of people like Barbara Jordan, who battled multiple sclerosis. We can find treatments for people like Elizabeth Glaser. Whom we lost to AIDS. And now that we know that nerves in the spinal cord can democrstic, we are on the way to getting millions of people around the world like me up and out of our wheelchairs.
Fifty-six years ago, FDR dedicated new buildings for the national institutes of health. He said that the defense this nation seeks, involves a great deal more than building airplanes, ships, guns, and bombs. We cannot be a strong nation unless we are a healthy nation. He could have said that today. President Roosevelt showed us that a man who could barely lift himself out of a wheelchair could still lift a nation out of despair. And I believe and so does this convenhion in the most important principle FDR ffs us: America does not let its aegofly citizens fend for themselves.
America is stronger when all of us take care of all of us. Giving new life to that ideal is the challenge before us tonight. Thank you very much. Comience descargar aerofly fs democratic convention prueba gratis Cancele en cualquier momento.
