Quote from article:
For many disabled visitors, their arrival at the stadium this week marked an entry into a remarkable theme park of accessibility and inclusion, starkly different from everyday life. Their descriptions of the transition between normality and the bubble of the park suggest a juxtaposition as sharp as the leap from black and white to the technicolour of Oz. For a few hours, visitors to the ParalympicsGB experience what it is like to live in a genuinely accessible and all-embracing society. Wheelchair users have found that travel from London has been unusually easy. Well-trained volunteers are on hand to make sure every visitor who needs help gets it immediately. Most importantly, the focus of the event is on a section of society more used to being ignored.
Like many, Shorey was overwhelmed by the positive atmosphere within the park, but uncertain about how to reconcile it with his more familiar experiences of living in a society where his disability remains a daily obstacle.
