I realise that not everyone has warmed to my requests for accessible toilets. (Mainly people who can use a toilet pretty much everywhere they go.)
I am thinking there might even be some people out there hoping that I don’t contact them so that they don’t have to do anything. (Again, people who can use a toilet anywhere they go, and who don’t even think to call ahead to ask if there is one!)
But they should be reminded of one thing.
The annoying woman might have written the words but they came from the heart of a small boy.
Then he posted them.
All by himself.
He is waiting for replies, because this matters to him.
He thinks he should be able to go shopping in all of his local towns. He thinks he should be able to go out to lunch, visit the library, do a bit of shopping and play in the park all on the same day.
Is he really asking too much? Surely this is what every town council wants people to be doing? Surely they want people to stay as long as possible? To have lunch, drinks and maybe an icecream?
So, if one of these envelopes lands in your hands, remember who really sent them.
Think about Adam when you have your meetings.
As you drink your coffee.
As you inevitably pop to the bathroom without even a thought.
Is your town accessible? If it doesn’t have a fully accessible toilet with a ceiling hoist and a changing bench, then it isn’t.
