The Challenged Conquistadors, Inc. Abstract - Poem by Shaun W. Best

Many unsophisticated people have thoughtlessly labelled challenged individuals as both incompetent and unworthy of dignity/respect by using terms, i.e., crippled, retarded, invalid, disabled, handicapped, sabotaged, afflicted, and disadvantaged. A main reason for this unacquainted situation is miseducated individuals. The fact is evident, i.e., Shakespeare in Hamlet "Words, words, words":. Words, in fact, are the reasons we have competencies and destruction. Language is very critical in the development of all individuals, i.e., infants, etc. This stage can start as early as the seventh & eighth month of development. This could lead one to believe that we enjoy & take part in destructive & demoralizing the human element. Language will be eternalized, while perpetually portraying those erroneous confirmation, if continued!!! Language crosses very aspect of life! This is not a attractive confession, but as long as individuals are isolated or confined to controlled situations by labels, we may never realize the fullest capabilities that many possess. some benefit of reverence and distinction are: labels will only limit our effectiveness to become greater assets; employers openly and reassuringly employ more individuals with challenges; a reduction of individuals on social programs; increased minds determined of positive productivity vs. negative; decreasing homeless rates; ability to match unemployed with adequate employer; reduce social injustices by communities acceptance of those challenged as economic partners; & activate, educate, motivate, and stimulate employers to utilize our talents since the taxpayer put us back together, in many cases, to benefit our society! To conclude, my strategy is unique and revolutionary because I believe all individuals are equal and competent! This educational improvement is required if we are to move on toward progress vs. stagnation and destruction!

Additional positive activities are as follows: increased problem solving capabilities (a problem is a confused solution), constructive leadership and guidance, and an optimistic perception of our world which has many opportunities for winners. Where are the winners located? Every human is a winner, if we really desire to obtain the best!

A point to ponder; As we humans look around us at our empires of knowledge and competence, we are all oblivious by the systematic degeneration of ourselves! How can we explanation or what can our efforts result in that will purposefully better our condition? I can only work at my pace because no others are concerned, other than lip service, which fills no need, unless the individual is soon to die! Will we involve before or after the final fate of our fathers?
