In honor of the great awareness of the disability movement being created by the terrific Independent Lens (PBS) program, Lives Worth Living, I’m featuring five weeks of participants from nine years of RicStar’s Camp.

Each one represents a Face of Ability and a life worth living.

First up, RicStar’s Camp namesake and my son, Eric, who had a gift for music and cerebral palsy.

Awareness changes perceptions, and lives.
