From AAPD (10.27.2011):
Tonight PBS will air the documentary “Lives Worth Living” about disability rights champion Fred Fay. This is TV worth watching. In an era when so much TV programming features people who are famous for being famous, we have a rare chance to learn about someone who moved mountains.
Who was Fred Fay? He was an architect of the disability rights movement. He was a founder of the Justice for All web network. He was an organizer, an innovator, and an inventor. Working from a motorized bed he designed with three computer screens in reach, Fred Fay connected people to ideas and to each other. Over the course of decades, he knocked down barriers for people with disabilities and helped change our landscape to be more accessible.
Watch “Lives Worth Living” with your friends, family, congregation, classmates, or neighbors. Launch a conversation-- what makes our lives worth living, and what would it take to fulfill our enormous potential as Fred did? What can we invent? Whom can we touch with our own gifts?
