At the hospital, having serious contractions but not dilating! Prayers appreciated! 🎀👣😆
"I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at Christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when peole smile at me, when people are polite to me. There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful; I have every reason in the world to be happy."
Pictures on here always show soldiers and their girlfriends but this is the first time I’ve seen a father and son, and it’s such an amazing picture.
"People get mad when you treat them how they treat you."
A few days ago in a parking lot in Lisbon wheelchair users and volunteers occupied all the available Non-Handicap spaces to make a point to able-bodied motorists what it is like to have “their” parking places unavailable to them.
On every wheelchair various notes were left like: "be right back", "it only takes a moment", "I’m get something here", etc.
Reblogged this yesterday from a different source, but I think this photograph is more powerful.
I love this so much I’ll reblog it a million times!
Didn’t really need the wheelchair if they decided to leave it, did they?
maybe they were chairs loaned by volunteers.
maybe they were provided by wheelchair users with more than one chair.
maybe they were provided by people who can walk short distances, but need a chair for long distances.
maybe they were provided by wheelchair user who felt the issue was so prevalent they actually sacrificed the ability to get around for the time they were placed there.
those are just a few possibilities. but, gee, how dare those fakers not be grateful enough for the few crumbs - passed as accessibility - thrown at their feet, that they have to swallow with a fucking smile on their face every day, so some asshole won’t attack their speaking up about their experiences as a disabled person.
Tumblr user extaticus showing the exact problem as to why this kind of message had to presented. What a time to be alive.
