YouTube Alert: Life in a Wheelchair

Anyone who has ever struggled with their child's heavy wheelchair will appreciate this simple, funny, yet so sad YouTube video entitled Life in a Wheelchair. It quickly brought back memories of many tough, frustrating moments for my son and me as we worked hard to move about society like everyone else during the twelve years of his life.

Don't even get me started on handicapped parking violators...

The general population should watch this to become more sensitive to the often absurd challenges of inaccessibility face by those with special needs. Accessibility is a freedom most people take for granted.

Until they become disabled.

Worth the two and one-half minute viewing time. Watch it here.

Sign, signs, everywhere there are signs.
