I admit that most of you are probably wondering, “Who is Aaron Fotheringham?” Perhaps the bigger question is why the biggest minority in United States has the least representation in the media?

According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau about 56.7 million people or 19% of the population has a disability in America. The report describes into account a broad definition of disability, with more than half of them reporting the disability was severe.

Since film is 100% of is about engaging its audience and if most people enjoy viewing films with characters they can relate to then why not provide films that nearly 20% OF THE population can share in its experience? Just asking.

Aaron is set to play his namesake in The Law of Moises. He has Spina Bifida but is an incredible moto-cross athlete.

Aaron’s character is present day Aaron, i.e. Aaron from the Bible. He is Moises’ best friend.

It started when he lost his parents. So, he doesn’t talk much cause he can’t get much out before he s…s…tutters which is only funny because I’m in this wheelchair. [/su_box]
