A Brief Biography of Rolling With DJ Adam
I was taken off disability because I needed better healthcare than what was available to me, and in spite of the government taking away my benefits, I started my own business as a DJ and am also a minister. When you come across somebody who is disabled, I’m telling everyone to try and be nice and understanding because you never know what they have gone through in their life. Shine the light where there is darkness. Never give up on what you do.
Although I may be limited, I have many joys and talents, as well as lots of potentials. You wonder how much I am aware of. I see that as well. I am aware of much, whether you are happy or sad or fearful. Patient, impatient, full of love and desire, or if you are just doing your duty where I am concerned. I marvel at your frustrations, knowing mine to be far greater, as I cannot speak as clearly, sometimes hesitate, or lose my train of thought altogether. You cannot conceive of my isolation, so complete it is, at times. I do not gift you with clever conversation or cute remarks to be laughed over and repeated. I do not give you answers to your everyday questions or a response about my well-being, share my needs or comments about the world around me. I do not give you rewards, as defined by the world’s standards, or great strides in development that you can credit yourself for. I do not give you understanding, as you know it. What I give you is so much more valuable. I give you. Instead, opportunities to discover the depth of your character, not mine. The depth of your love, your commitment, your patience, and your abilities. The opportunity to explore your spirit more deeply than you ever imagined possible. I drive you further than you will ever go on your own, seeking answers to your many questions, and creating questions with no answers. I am the shadow you easily pass by. You are a shadow that passes by me. You see the longing in my eyes to get out of this chair, to stand up like others. There is much you take for granted. I want the item at the store, but it is on the top shelf, out of my reach, but just a little stretch for you, I want to go to the bathroom myself, in privacy. I would like to pick up a spoon and feed myself breakfast, maybe make your breakfast sometimes. I am dependent on you in these ways. I see your impatience, and I build a wall, so I can’t feel my pain. I wish I could help you, help me. My gift to you is to make you aware of your great fortune, your healthy back, your hands and legs, and your ability to do for yourself. Sometimes people do not notice me. I always notice them. I am in this chair. You always look down at me. It hurts my neck to look up at your chest, LOL. If you could step back a bit, that would help me see you, and also, maybe you can see me better. I would be lying if I told you that I never feel envy or desire to stand upright, to put one foot in front of the other, or to be independent. If you accept it, I will give you awareness and an opportunity to see what I can offer. It is usually all that I have. I am here. I cannot walk. I am challenged with Cerebral Palsy and all that goes with it, and that’s a lot. Sometimes I am scared of being left once more because it is very difficult to help me and love me at the same time. I don’t learn easily, but I am curious, so there is a teacher in me that shows me the way. What I do know is infinite joy in simple things. I am not burdened as you are with the striving and conflicts of life. My gift to you is to grant you the freedom to enjoy things as a child, to teach you how much it means to me to have your arms around me, to give you love. I give you the gift of simplicity. I am the shadow in front of you. If you try, you can see me. I am here, your teacher, as you are mine. If you allow me, I will teach you what is really important in life. I will give you and teach you, unconditional love. I give you my trust and my dependency upon you. I teach you about how very precious life is and about not taking things for granted. I teach you about forgetting your own needs and desires, and dreams. I teach you how to give. Most of all, I teach you hope, faith, and love. I am a shadow. You can see me if you slow down and look. You will see, I love you unconditionally. I learned this in my chair. A chair that is colorful, just as I want my world to be. My chair is covered in duct tape. It has lights and a bell. There is so much going on that you can barely see me. I wear a mask. It makes you look. There is a lot going on, as there is in life. This is why I do what I do. I am a shadow with light and love. You can see me if you try, as I see you.
PS this is why I do what I do to create awareness because people with disabilities should not have to be treated that way in any circumstance. Never give up the fight
