City stages its first parade for disabled
New York City held its first parade Sunday supporting people with disabilities, with more than 3,000 participants heading up Broadway using wheelchairs, canes and guide dogs.
“We’re here full-force,” said rapper Namel Norris, 33, who has used a wheelchair since being shot in the Bronx and paralyzed as a teenager. “I thought my life was over, but music is my calling. I have a purpose in life.”
