That is good you are doing that Delores. The general public can use some educating as well. People are so quick to give opinions on everything but it's nothing like working in someone else's shoes. In my volunteer days I volunteered as a participant for the first year anniversary of the American's with Disabilities act. I worked in museum education that is heavyly ran by volunteers and we we involved ourselves in the communities to give back. I were to - for an entire work day walk in the shoes of a disabled person. Whatever their disability was i were to take it on. My person had restricted used on one side of her body, so they strapped an asparatus to restrict my left side, not giving much use of my arm, hand, and leg.

I had to go about my workday and note what problems I had, what I felt, and what I had to adjust to get my tasks done. The first thing I learned to do was ask for help. And I felt pain too.

Going out to lunch was the most interesting. People stared at me. Men opened doors for me to really help and not to just get a better look at you. At the end of the day I was really tired, I think it was because I had to use extra efforts to get things done.

After the asparatus was removed and we talked about the events of the day and when I hugged my friend to say goodbye, I felt so bad because I could take off and remove the restriction I had on me. She couldn't.
