babies and people

Traveling around with my infant daughter in a carriage I use the subway elevators which are awesome. Hardly noticed their construction over the years. Makes me proud of this city and the people who voted in this inclusive line of thought. One becomes more sensitive to the complications parents have navigating public spaces. But strangely every time I take an elevator there are able bodied people in line who I have to wait for. Aside from the weird laziness they are also costing themselves delays, they could board the subway quicker if they took the damn escalator or heaven forbid the stairs. Thats’ all I have to say.

    Having worked with people with disabilities of all kinds, I would like to say that some health issues are not readily apparent, and that a person can appear able bodied but be unable to withstand exertion due to internal issues.
    Having said that, it would be difficult to believe that all those people lined up to use the elevators are suffering from serious internal health issues; perhaps most of them have mental health issues.
