Pride of Our Native Land

Four legged people are indispensable and pride of our native land
With a pair of forelegs, they move forward with their gifted mind
They completely compensated their weaknesses with their creative hands
Making native products and handcrafts for tourists to buy in souvenir stands

Nov. 17,2012

*pair of forelegs means the pair of crutches/the four wheels of a wheelchair

A dedication to physically handicapped brothers and sisters who shared their aesthetic skills in making native products, art works or handicrafts being sold in different beauty spots of our country.

    This is a great tribute to those people. We have them everywhere. My late husband has a nephew that is blind and he is a computer instructor. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Leonora, I want to thank you on this american holiday, for being such a sweet friend to me here on soup. Thanks for all your comments recently which I have not been able to get back to. I've just been unusually busy preparing for the holiday and my son is here now from Oregon. So nice! Luv, Andrea

    Thanks for the educational information about your country..It is good that the person or persons who are handicapped can do creative or artistic crafts to make an income for their families..Our country handles things differently now..At one time the handicapped sat on the city streets and did different things to earn some money..I remember there was one man who sold pencils and one who played the guitar and sang..Those stood out in my child's mind..Great work that you have penned..Sara

    There is wisdom in all of this. It's a lot better than being written off or ostracized like happens in a lot of places. Thanks
