An Army veteran was returning to his car one afternoon when he saw a very ugly note on his car. Scribbled in chicken-scratch, a neighbor had lambasted him for using a handicap space without a hanging tag, and while not “looking handicapped.” The veteran’s response, however, was everything.
It is time to end the shame associated with invisible disabilities. You never know what kind of pain someone else is going through, even if they “look” perfectly abled. Show compassion and don’t waste time trying to “call people out” when you don’t know them.
