    Origin

    Middle English (also in the sense ‘clemency, mildness’): from Old French pite ‘compassion’, from Latin pietas ‘piety’; compare with piety.

    Disabled people, of all ages do not need pity we need understanding and encouragement in everything we do.

    As a disabled young man I could quite easily go into a dark room and cry at the hand life has dealt me, OR I can get on with life.
