what I myself take for granted

I came across this brilliant post today and thought I would share it. Read it and then my comments are to follow.  I found this interesting I have many of my own personal account:

I once travelled far from home to a family wedding. We were offered offered an accessible room which was in a different building from that which the rest of family so declined the accessible room and we just popped my chair in. it worked out well until we decided to go to dinner. knowing that we like to visit the local hot spots when visiting a place for the first time we looked in the little book in our room to find a restaurant that we had never heard of to try. we called and made reservations and we clearly asked are you wheelchair accessible. we were told they were, two hours later we found the place (had gone the wrong way the restaurant was three minutes from our room) anyway we arrived to see that they were accessible by TWO FLIGHTS OF STAIRS my sister ran in to see if they had an alternate entrance and they did not yet someone said the were accessible!!??!!?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
