A Famous Statesman with Cerebral Palsy

stephen_hopkins_151Stephen Hopkins – Signed the Declaration of Independence and then led militias in defense of the United States against the British. He suffered from what is believed to be a mild case of cerebral palsy. History famously records that when he signed the Declaration he said, “My hand may shake but my heart does not.” He was a respected member of Congress and helped form America into the country it is today.

I love this one too. He proved that you can do things to change where you live no matter a physical state. I also love his quote in here. Remember that you to can have a hand in changing the place you live. Your disability does not matter in your ability to change this world!
