You know what? I think you’re cold and insensitive. I hope you never have a child with difficulties—you’d probably put it out with your trash!
And what’s more, I think you’re wrong—I know you are! Melody has more brains hidden in her head than you’ll ever have, despite those fancy degrees from fancy schools you’ve got posted all over your walls!
You’ve got it easy—you have all your physical functions working properly. You never have to struggle just to be understood. You think you’re smart because you have a medical degree?
You’re not so intelligent, sir— you’re just lucky! All of us who have allour faculties intact are just plain blessed.
Melody is able to figure out things, communicate, and manage in a world where nothing works right for her. She’s the one with the true intelligence!
I’m taking you right now and enrolling you at Spaulding Street Elementary School.
