Different but the same (P1)
烟台第二中学 孔洁
I. Warming up  
Have you ever heard stories about inspirational people?
Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who fought for equality and acceptance of an entire race.
The disabled woman who founded the International Day of Acceptance, Annie Hopkins was herself an inspiration.
My deepest passion as a disability rights advocate lies not in the act of “raising awareness”, but in promoting acceptance.
The more we focus on acceptance, and on encouraging shared connections and understanding among all people, the better off we’ll all be.
-- Annie Hopkins

It would be possible that she could walk again. And if she can walk, thren she can dance.

Their solution was to become one big happy family together. However, for that they needed two permanent foster parents. So the children put an ad in the Kansas City Star: “Wanted: parents for five mixed-ethnicity children.” There was an enormous response to the ad. Fostering agencies had no trouble putting the group of kids together in a single home, with a single set of parents. Now they have what they always wanted, a “forever home”.
