Disability may not be visible

I wanted to write a letter in regards to an incident my husband had this week.
We have a son with muscular dystrophy. He is six years old.

I wanted to write a letter in regards to an incident my husband had this week.

We have a son with muscular dystrophy. He is six years old.

He has a disability parking pass that goes in whatever vehicle he is going to be getting in and out of.

As of right now he is still in the ambulatory stage but can only walk so far before he is tired, so to the average person that does not know or understand, he looks perfectly fine.

So, I just wanted to say thank you to the old man that screamed at my husband for parking in the disabled spot, in front of my son when you have no idea of the situation and for calling my husband a liar.

My son did not need to see that, and we do not need the added stress.

I am hoping this letter will make people realize that people  need to learn not to judge people/situations based on face value.

Next time you are about to jump in and scream at someone who has a disabled parking  pass in the car when the physical impairments may not be visible, maybe you will think first before you speak.
