Because it galvanizes us to attack the cancer of inaccessibility.

Because It reveals the innate prejudices against PWD that enable us to
present a "humanitarian award" to a man who made a career of mocking
developmentally disabled children.

Because the lofty goals of the Web (everyone/everything/everywhere/always
connected) deserve our best efforts.

Because it makes us realize that we can abide the silly scratchings of an
unnecessary undertaking in order to reveal our better selves.
