So this week I have had a hotel clerk try to say there were no rooms because he would not allow a service dog, because he insisted they’re really pets?
A man who lives with spina- bifida goes for a test drive in a car and returns to find his wheelchair stolen? He was gone 2 minutes in the car?
A friend in Manhattan was refused service in a restaurant she had a booking in because two friends were in wheelchairs and it “lowered the class of the room if they were there?
Do we have to take out billboards that state
“BEFORE LEAVING HOME PLEASE GOOGLE CARING ,COMPASSION ,HUMANITY AND DECENCY?”
I Have lived with epilepsy all my life partial disability for 15 years and 8 full time in a wheelchair and unfortunately I find the only way it gets better is to steal every moment yourself, take no quarter, train those in your life by example that you will not take their shit, you will not accept the back of the bus your body might be broken but your soul is only hitching a ride.
You are the same if not even better than when you once stood upright because now you truly stand for something.
Who steals a wheelchair? Who thinks the disabled lower the class in a room? Troglidytes that who sub human species who don’t deserve the communal oxygen they use they think we lower the class? They would need the stunt skills of wheelz fotheringham just to reach the bottom end of humanity.
Don’t be these people, choose decency remember these people are born of the same tribe as you, one of human decency they rely on yours because thiers it seems is never enough for them to rolol through a day without hitting the wall of idiots who assume the ability to be bi-pedal makes them superior, I’m sorry since my height was cut down three feet and whells put under my ass my eyes have been opened to the true status of this world and the ability to stand upright has nothing to do with your level of decency quite the opposite infact.
The only saving grace I find is the thankfully still existing small pockets of beautiful people I have found in corners of the world few and far between I am lucky to call most of them friend and when ever possible I share them with others. Are you a member of one of these groups or do you believe your ability to stand or walk or run makes you better than most?
It’s time to choose decency, it’s time to pay the piper, your spot on this earth is not free it comes with the price of paying it forward.
If you hide behind religious hypocrisy like so many do, read your holy book whether it’s in Hebrew Arabic English or hindi I guarantee it charges you to live a life so that it demands a question, when your question is answered will you like the answer ? will yours be a good and caring friend or subspecies if you thought the first but it’s sadly the second time is running out grow up were all here together let’s act like it.
