I think you have seen them before. That little kid bound to a wheelchair because he has a disability that paralyzed his legs. He will never walk. That old man who still lives with his mother, who has a brain deficiency. And that lady who walks around town just watching talking in gibberish and never changing. All these people have disabilities. They don’t choose to be this way. It’s just how they end up. In the novel, “Of Mice and Men," the author addresses the human rights issue of mental illnesses and this problem is an issue in the US and in other countries. It could be the cause of an accident or it could be a birth defect or just something that happens gradually over time. They can’t help how they are. They live life the best they can and try to make it every day.

Mental disabilities do not need to stop people from living their lives to the fullest. People are always being discriminated because of disabilities. It’s unfair that they are treated differently because of something they can’t control. It’s sad that so many people would make fun of someone with a brain defect or bodily mutation. You see commercials on TV all the time but nothing changes, People claim they are being selfless and some are…but it’s amazing how many homeless people we have that are not being helped. On the streets and some in their own homes. Handicapped do need special attention in rare cases but they just want to be treated like normal people. No one wants to be treated like a basket case…
