Acts of Kindness

IMG_1286One of the things that I’d like to devote some of this blog to are random (or not so random) acts of kindness. I think whenever we receive this type of validation it is worth remembering and passing on.  And I’m not just saying this as a disabled person -it’s more meant as a reflection of the era that we live in, where in spite of calamities, greed, violence, etc. there can be moments that help us “keep faith.”   If you’re reading this please comment with similar stories as tenacity is obviously a huge inspiration for me and this blog.

So by now you might be wondering what that photo at the top of my blog is in reference to.  On a recent trip to Chicago, which is incidentally one of my FAVORITE places to go, I saw something that I have never seen before.  An entire parking lot of accessible spaces, with zebras in between every space.  And of course, there was an attendant at the entrance to the lot checking for handicap placards/plates.  How sweet is that?  For my van there has to be a zebra on the right side as I have a ramp that deploys off that side, but obviously there are those who require that the additional space be on the left side, and all are equally deserving of the additional space.  Now with this particular parking lot all parties are accomodated.

So I get that this isn’t exactly a “random act of kindness” but it made me so happy to see this type of dream parking lot.
