To that end, a group of experts has gotten together and published an insightful, somewhat disturbing, but ultimately uplifting post about how the disabled and elderly are treated, and what the future may bode:
"I have several friends that have disabilities which require mobility device. Just seeing them come into a room, you can see the look on peoples’ faces when they come by. It’s like a feeling of sympathy – my friends don’t ask for it, you know? They don’t want sympathy ... Advancements in technology just give people a better opportunity to show off their talents, and to show what they can do. It’s all about giving people the freedom to live the life that they want for themselves."
