Tonawanda News — I would like to comment on the narrow-minded person who posted on people who don’t appear handicap using handicap passes on their cars. I for one am one of those people. I may “appear” that I do not need one. Yet, I have handled a disease that only allows me to walk so far and then my body says no more! Sometimes people have things like this. Mine particularly is multiple sclerosis. What you did by posting that was show how you truly have no clue what it is like-not to be perfect!

To the person who sees “un-handicapped” people use handicap parking:  Do you realize all handicaps are not visible? What about those individuals, young and old, who have heart conditions, lung/breathing conditions and various other conditions that aren’t visible? Do you know you have to have a doctor’s note to even be considered? You clearly need to educate yourself about things before your criticize.  Maybe getting a hobby would eliminate your need to be so judgmental.

On Dec. 14, a person mentioned about our handicap parking. They stated that the police should look into these handicap parking tags because people are parking in the spots don’t even walk funny? Are you for real? To be handicapped you don’t have to show it in your walk, there are people out there with half a lung or fighting cancer that can walk but not a long way. There are all types of handicaps and it’s really none of your business to figure them out. Be happy you’re healthy, I’m sure the people you’re talking about wish they were.
