You Gotta DIG the Pledge:
I pledge to open up my mind and take a step toward
Embracing those I didn't see and may have once ignored.
I pledge to listen mindfully so others can be heard,
Including those who use their voice without the spoken word.
I pledge to open up a door and let a person through,
Who might not walk or might not talk exactly as I do.
I pledge to make an effort to oppose what isn’t fair
And do away with ignorance, and make myself aware.
I pledge to share my wisdom with the people who I love,
And teach them to renounce their fears, and learn to rise above.
I pledge a disability will not make me retreat,
Discovering our common ground is what makes us complete.
I pledge to be more grateful for the things that I can do.
With gratitude and empathy, I'll share my point of view.
So don't dis our abilities, just help us pave the way
For a movement of inclusion that’s already underway!
