Anybody else who is in a wheelchair have this experience? You’re rolling down the sidewalk not doing anything exceptional and someone sticks their hand out their car window and gives you the thumbs-up, or some similar gesture? I have, on several occasions. And because I am never doing anything exceptional, as I said, I have come to this conclusion:
They think I am a veteran.
I am not.
But I appreciate the sentiment.
When I receive this kind of “gratitude” because I have no time to verify the reason behind the gesture or to set them straight on the matter, I mentally send the gesture back out to all that have lost their lives or – more appropriately to the situation – lost their physical ability to the Hell of war.
I’ve written on this subject before and posted my own version of “Mission Accomplished” by writing about my victory, blah blah blah. So I am just posting to say that my building’s managers are finally today putting in the ramp at the office that I have talked about throughout the last few years. They are really doing it. I can hear the construction workers. I will be able to use it tomorrow. Let this be a lesson to you. Whining always leads to victory! lol No, that is not the lesson. There isn’t one.
