A·BIL·I·TY

/ƏˈBILƏDĒ/ NOUN

1. POWER OR CAPACITY TO DO OR ACT

ABILITY IS SOMETHING THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO BREAK BARRIERS. IT CAPTIVATES THE MIND AND CAUSES INSPIRATION. ABILITIES CHANGE WITH TIME, AND IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, OUR ABILITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH TECHNOLOGY, ART, COMMUNICATION AND EDUCATION IS GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE. THE THEME OF ABILITY WAS CHOSEN TO DEMONSTRATE THIS TO THE YOUTH OF PITTSBURGH, AND TO INSPIRE THEM TO USE THEIR GREAT ABILITY TO BREAK DOWN BARRIERS AND MAKE MEANINGFUL CHANGE IN THE WORLD.
