There are many ways to be inspired. Like an artist you can be the only one inspired by a muse. The question is how to judge inspiration when we are being told someone is inspirational. When you see a news story or poster about a disabled person being inspirational, remember to ask yourself why. Positive inspiration comes from an idea that makes you fight for or against something. For example, Ed Roberts who founded the Centers for Independent Living (CIL), is a positive role model. The way the CIL was formed by actions of a group of students lead by Ed Roberts is a great demonstration of filling a need with action.
On the other hand, negative inspirational objectification comes from making disability a negative to overcome. This can be stated in words or as an image. These negative inspirations do not appreciate the contributions of the individual. It puts stereotypes first. Understanding the difference can help you form some of your own strong objective opinions about inspiration, and these will help develop your thinking on disability.
