Equador has just elected the world's first wheelchair-using head of state. According to this article from the New York Times I just came across, ''When he assumes office next month, [Lenin] Moreno will be the only head of state who needs a wheelchair to get around.'' I think that's rather cool, and certainly a step in the right direction (forgive the pun). At least it shows some of us are still opening up and becoming more inclusive, rather than sinking back into hatred.
