The Photo Writing Prompt
Description for my blind/visually impaired readers: This looks to me like a busy corner with shops and people.
This picture transported me to the No Barriers Summit of 2019 in California, which was a harrowing event for me.
The Story: Endless Barriers Summit
No barriers? I wish.
For the wounded warriors, chair users, and deaf, yes. The team did everything possible to accommodate those disabled.
But I, blind traveling alone, spent the entire event panicked and confused. My guide dog and I trekked endless miles getting lost, hunting down sessions across the sprawling destination hotel complex. I cried and experienced countless anxiety attacks until finally settling in the right place.
Thanks for reading!
Cheers to your #BLISSfulLife!!
