Barriers to some

As the mother of a 6-year-old physically handicapped daughter, I know these barriers to be very real. Lack of ramps, curbs that are too high, broken sidewalks and lack of elevator accessibility are a few. There is no excuse that so much of the world is inaccessible to the handicapped. I certainly hope that by the time my daughter goes to college, her choices will not be limited by which institutions can accommodate her wheelchair.
