No disability, only ability, in God’s creation

Last year I paid a visit, as a tourist, to the farm near Dumfries, Scotland, where Robert Burns wrote one of his best-known poems, “A Man’s a Man for A’ That.” I was thrilled to be standing on the spot where Burns penned those lines in January 1795. 

Once a poor tenant farmer, Burns wrote the poem to stress the humanity and equality of all men, and the fact that rank and title do not make a man, or distinguish him as superior to other men. Rather, what makes a man or woman and constitutes their true substance and worth are virtues such as honesty, an independent mind, and common sense.
