People with disabilities who have trouble getting around is not a good scene. Disabled people are just like anyone else. They have lives to live with both personal and work responsibilities. I know several people who have disabilities. Not one of these people what to sit at home and do nothing. These people look forward to getting out and doing their activities just like the rest of the population. Therefore, Disabled People Need Voice.
These people’s disabilities range from physical to visual to special needs. It does not matter what the disability is society needs to always accommodate the people with what ever disability they have.
The lack of consideration for a person with a disability is shown in this article “Blocked from medical appointment, McGill Student with disabilities speaks out against construction”. It is not just the physical trouble that Stephanie Chipeur faced. The visual impaired and anyone else would find it difficult to get around construction. This is true for the Montreal area and any other city.
With todays technology and abilities there is no reason for this to happen. Stephanie Chipeur and others should be assisted more. People with disabilities are out and about all the time tending to their every day activities. It is not even like it was fifty or thirty years ago. As a result government and the public need to be more aware of the needs of today’s Disabled. The human factor needs to be front and center to the public.
With family members who themselves have disabilities the awareness level of these needs is there. It is not right that these people miss appointments and even find it difficult to get to their appointments. It is never easy to reschedule any appointment. Disabled people should not have to wait for a rescheduled appointment.
Conclusion of The Matter
This is just one situation in many that happen every day. Stephanie Chipeur has chosen to speak out for herself and for others that are unable to speak out. As a result we applaud Stephanie for speaking out. More people need to speak out about disability needs. Speaking out will create change.
I want to thank Gerald Chipeur for passing this article on to us. This is one area that Gerald Chipeur devotes his time. He enjoys and finds it rewarding to be on the front lines helping those who are not able to speak up for themselves. Therefore, people can be heard.
