       Many people with disabilities end up on the street where they are accepted and cared for. There is one young woman who has lost the ability to move her hands above her waist. Somebody is always there to help her to put on sunscreen, hold a cell phone to her ear, or light a cigarette for her. A woman in a wheelchair comes to State Street and holds babies for mothers who are there. Disabled people, including quite a few who are mentally ill, can come to State Street and find unconditional acceptance, not as freaks, but as human beings.
