Cori Coleman is currently enticing readers with short stories and long tales of fantasy, love, and perseverance. Mentallly Challenged: why name call? A title to make you think; he thought to himself – as he begins his journey as a writer, became more than a catch phrase but what Coleman intends to soon make a monument in society. With an older brother diagnosed with a learning disability, at age 16 Coleman began some extensive research into what challenges fell before his older brother in life. After observing children from elementary schools, middle schools, and high school, it became evident the challenges of those with disabilities can be reading, writing, listening, memory, and various other obstacles. Many of the individuals with disabilities were successful at learning how to overcome reading and writing challenges, but there was however one challenge each individual failed to overcome every day, night, and forever – the disability itself.
Today we label certain individuals with mental disabilities as challenged, but how incontrovertibly unfair and beyond untrue. From youth to adults, there is no challenge here, they will not recover or become reborn, or endure some living transformation involving the spirit ideas of reincarnation. When you have autism that is what you have, autism and that will not change. As for us, what I hear many of us describe ourselves as “Normal folk” it is apparent, we do have challenges, mental challenges and we also have possible real life solutions leading us to the victory over these challenge. Our lives are far more complex than any rare or common disability. What we endure on a daily basis is the very evidence of the manifestation of our challenges psychologically. The labels we press upon those who have to live with certain behaviors indefinitely must be reassigned. For our intelligence has been praised often to high, and our system of living is and has been bullied into a pattern of obstacles and struggles only the normal man can create for another human being. We have responsibilities far more grave and life threatening and the time to seek out these challenges is now. The time to realize who really suffers from Mental Challenges is now. And the individual’s, who shall first recognize this, is we. Change starts now.
