For the first time in her life, Mina told me, she began to really realize, emotionally realize, what her husband faces every day. If it was Mina’s husband who was trying to get to the second floor, how would he have gotten through the doors? What if he had needed help and called out? What disaster might have happened if the wheels of his wheelchair had gotten caught in the elevator opening? What if once on the elevator he could not reach the button? Each “what if” left Mina cold as she realized she had just walked through, for just a few minutes, something her husband and all handicap people face 24/7.Ann Novick
