Try To Walk In My Shoes

Living with a disability is something that many of us don't really understand, you know the buzzword, and you do notice people with disabilities, but to truly understand what someone with a disability has to endure, that old saying of "Walk In My Shoes" comes to mind.

Before you judge my life, my past or my character. Walk in my shoes, walk the path I have traveled, live my sorrow, my doubts, my fear, my pain and my laughter. Remember, everyone has a story, when you've lived my life then you can judge me.

Many people in the past that have a disability, have had to lead a more sheltered life, not willing in public, to try to test the limits of their capabilities. With Government legislation opening many doors to disabled people, alot of the barriers are gone that not so long ago, would have stopped a disabled person from participating in what we call normal everyday activities.

But Government legislation can't fix everything, and when an organization goes out of it's way to try to make things easier for people with disabilities, like Barrier Free Access, a round of applause is due. And, that's what's been going on at Lion's Landing Marina Park, they now have a wheelchair accessible washroom, picnic area, picnic tables, and designated Handicap Parking so people using a wheelchair can have a comfortable visit at the Park. And the Lions Club would like to remind everyone, that this park is a Public Park for everyone and all are welcome at the Park.
