The End of the Paralympics

Okay so this is totally un-book related. But have you been watching the Paralympics? My family love sports and so we’ve been glued to our screens for both the Olympics earlier this year and also the Paralympics!

The UK is doing pretty good! We’re decently high up the medal table methinks and we should be proud of ourselves.

I do wonder how much of that is privilege. Disabled people in the UK struggle to get basic rights and we’re supposedly a first world country. Disabled people can’t even get married without losing their benefits. There are so many places completely inaccessible without using steps, and sometimes many flights.

Just something to think about at the end of this weekend.

Let me know if you watched the Paralympics and how your country did in the event!!
