A Valuable Lesson

Tuesday July 22nd, 2014 / 0 Comments

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Today’s post is a fine example of that:

The above picture is from Lisbon (taken a few months ago). Wheelchair users and volunteers placed wheelchairs in the available non-disabled spots in a parking lot. The goal was to make able-bodied drivers understand what it’s like to have their spots occupied.

Additionally, notes were placed on each of the wheelchairs. The notes said “Just getting something here,” “I’ll be right back” and “It only takes me a moment.”

Hopefully the drivers learned a valuable lesson.
