There are some things that are weighing on my mind heavily and it all came to a point yesterday, while I was at a local grocery store buying milk for Noah. It made me think of how society views those who they perceive as weak and disadvantaged. It made me question how our current structures support families who care for loved ones who have physical and/or intellectual disabilities. I ranted over at twitter already. Before I go on and build a post around what I experienced, I will need to clear my head first and my heart as well. I was filled with disappointment more than anger that some businesses would choose to further disadvantage an already marginalized sector of society by depriving them of what they’re entitled to under the law for the sake of profits. (Yes they broke the law). Anyway, I won’t name names here and I am waiting for the head of legal of that business to contact me to clarify their policies.
So to the owners of the supermarket chain, I leave with you with this picture:
When your “system” said NO to me, you said NO to our family. You said NO to our Noah. You said NO to families who are all caring for a child/children with disabilities.
That’s what you did.
