River of Time
What kind of freak are you?”
“Look how weird she walks!”
“Can you stay away from my children? Don’t ever come close to them again!”

Over 26 years of growing up, I had put up with such painful insults just because I was born with a different body. I am short, small and have swollen hands and legs. Just because of that, so many people have intentionally taken away my human rights. Even my father who gave birth to me treated me as if I were a monster. When I was a child, I didn’t acknowledge that I, myself, was a person with a disability. I still tried to play with my friends like a lively child, but everyone refused and turned away from me. No one accepted a child like me. They thought I was bad. There were many reasons they gave me to isolate me.
