Who? Us?

We are two disabled, oldish women who have been adventuring through life for years. We are talking about how disabilities, both visible and not, change the way we enjoy our retirement.

White River Council on Aging - Rating 4

White River Area Agency on Aging

606 Sylamore Ave
 Mountain View, AR 72560
(870) 269-3807

In keeping with the prevailing attitude that almost is good enough, the Council on Aging of all people tried  to make do. They built a ramp to the door and then didn't give us enough room to open the door   and get in the building without falling down the steps.

In the first picture, you can see the handicap sticker on my dashboard, yet another label we are forced to display that sets us apart, marks us as not good enough. I'm surprised we don't have to sew a star on our shirts. Might as well. Can you imagine every single day of your life, you must be reminded that you don't fit in, you are not normal, that you are less than? Just once I'd like to hang, oh maybe Mardi Gras beads or fuzzy dice on my rear view mirror instead of my label marking me as inferior to everyone else. Just once.

Rating - 4
