  • Years ago I use to be the same way as the mean disabled man in your story. I use to judge people all the time. The reason? I really think it was because I thought I was superior. I thought if I made people look small, it made me look big. Of course I was only a little child. Some of us grow up in life and realize that God did not want us the judge. It is not our responsibility. God knew that our minds could not understand how to judge with honor and true Justis. I'm glad I do not have that responsibility put on me. Thank the good Lord for his GOOD JUDGEMENT.

  • Thank you for you article Mrs. Kluesner. That wise man you mentioned had something that's truly missing in our society, compassion! Jesus set the example! He was constantly being moved with compassion on the multitudes! I too have a heart condition and was recently told it's getting worse. Although not quite as bad as yours. I sure applaud you for coming forward and talking about your ilness. I sure hope many will read your article n be moved with compassion instead of judging.

  • I know many, as yourself, who are legitimately ill but as a healthcare professional I have direct experience with those who are not. There are those that take advantage of handicapped parking because they basically are plain lazy, they make up excuses why they can't do this or do that. It's true you can't always judge by outward appearances how well a person is.
