I saw this article in my local newspaper and it made me think. This is an issue that I am very conflicted about. I haven’t really come to an absolute decision about this- it’s a really complicated issue.
The humanitarian in me instantly thinks that everyone should have equal access to everything. In an ideal world this would most certainly be the case. I sympathize with Mike who says: “You can’t live a spontaneous life, especially in the winter.” While I do not know what it’s like to be confined to a wheelchair I do understand the concept of having to plan out activities or change plans due to accessibility or disability. I agree that businesses should be wheelchair accessible, and have no problem with disability parking. But when it comes down to it, making everything accessible to everyone is just not realistic.
