My comment about the death of author Christopher Nolan, posted at Publishers Weekly:
“I’m saddened and sobered to read of Christopher Nolan’s untimely death. As a (less accomplished) writer with cerebral palsy myself (a more moderate version than Mr. Nolan had), I have grown accustomed to well-meaning people telling me what an “inspiration” I am. I think most people with disabilities don’t mind inspiring others, but what we really want is to be treated as equals. The life of Christopher Nolan is a testimony to the intrinsic dignity of all human beings, whether disabled or not–and to God’s grace in the midst of suffering. May he rest in peace.”
