Candole’s personal message to Persons With Disabilities
Always be kind, don’t forget the people who put you on that position and take care to manage personal boundaries. Our society is changing and you will get the respect and love you deserve. People who tackle life’s inevitable ups and downs with patience will have a much better chance of going the distance.
Always be positive and have a strong faith from above.
