I strongly disagree with Olivier Oliver Sacks – the author. Saying that she “failed” is so inequitable and harmful. People like Christina might feel miserable if they hear something like that. It also may have an impact on theirs health and level of motivation to fight with disabilities. Both Christina and the man from the linked video are trying their best to make their life better and to live like an average person. We should respect them and do everything to make their life better e.g. socialize with them. Saying that “they failed” definitely won’t help, it only can worsen the situation.
