This week our nation will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the American’s With Disabilities Act. Special events are planned here in Volusia County (ADA Celebration Flyer), and I encourage you to attend. Unfortunately, most will miss these events, and will not give the significance of this legislation a moments thought.
Consider tho, the struggles that so many around you face and how much more difficult their daily routine would be if they couldn’t access sidewalks, public restrooms, mass transit, or even fit through doorways. Their desire is to simply go where everyone else has gone before. Open your heart and mind to the dreams and desires of a marginalized portion of our population who desire to live full and meaningful lives – just like you.
