I like to follow couple bloggers, and one of them is from Taiwan:
I know her blog is in Chinese, and I don't have translation. Anyway, we forget sometimes how lucky we are in United States where there are handicap laws to protect individuals who are handicapped. When we go to stores, concerts, any public areas, there are places where government set up parking spaces for handicapped drivers, and the sidewalks are also designed to accommodate wheelchair access. Imagine if you are in a country where sidewalks are not even, no slope for wheelchair to go up or down, or even holes that cause falls. I know some people will say "Heck, I am not unlucky to be a handicap, so I don't need any of that" All I can say is "Dude, life is unpredictable, so who is sure who is not going to be handicapped later on in life." Also, how lucky we are that citizens in US also obey the laws not to park at handicap zones, can you imagine if you need the parking space but instead some non-handicap person decides to park there and the government doesn't do anything about it. Now, that is sad.
