There's so much hope in the disability community. Despite real stories about obstacles caused by cutbacks and lack of resources, I'm constantly finding people whose strong voices rise above the negative rhetoric.
Some are folks living with disability and others are nondisabled allies. They don't go around saying things like "one of these days". They find ways to circumvent problems and issues. Often it's done with a sense of humor and grace.
Sometimes the way people help is more empowering than the actual help they offer.
