Summary
Growing up, Mark Johnson was smaller thandifferent fromhis peers, which made him self-conscious. But after a diving accident left him paralyzed, he was different in a new way. Living with a disability, Mark struggled with the social attitudes that labeled people with disabilities as inferior. He took the prejudicial treatment personally and decided to do something about it. In 1983 he had the opportunity to co-found ADAPT, a grassroots network of people with disabilities that played a role in passing the Americans with Disabilities Act. Confronting - and changing - social attitudes certainly requires boldness and tactics such as civil disobedience; Marks arrest record is proof of this. However, Mark is better known for his engaging style that puts people at ease and encourages them to consider the benefits of accepting our differences. Part spiritual memoir, I Love Today is Marks reflection on his life as a son, husband, and father; as a person with a disability; as a community organizer; and as a child of God. It examines the fears behind our social attitudes and offers insights for a more inclusive world. Along the way, it inspires us all to learn to love today
