I am a peer tutor at American Fork High School. I am writing to say that I don't like the way people with disabilities are treated. They always get made fun of for something that isn't their fault. They didn't choose to be this way.

I think we should have classes that tell people exactly what disabilities are. We could have fund-raisers to raise the money for the teachers. The classes could be for everyone. People are afraid of what they don't know or understand.If we were to educate people about disabilities then maybe people would be more willing to help. Maybe they would see that the disabled are just loving people who need our help.

I just wish people would look at them and be grateful that they were born healthy.
