Wheelchair Village

This short, satirical article, adapted from an article written in 1975, asks us to imagine what it would be like to be an able-bodied person living in a town inhabited and run by physically impaired people who all use wheelchairs. The story is a sad reflection on the prejudice that exists - even today - in society and the way that this prejudice alienates whole sections of our society. Keyword: Attitudes
