When I Needed a Lift

Friday, April 17, 2009


The new building we transferred to did not have an elevator. I do not complain that much but after work today, I sprained my ankle while going down the stairs. As of now, I'm limping on my left foot but I still managed to go down. It just ruined my plans of going on a vacation this weekend because I might need to get rest to have it healed.

I do not have any angst against anyone but how in the world would I be able to go up the 3rd floor on Monday if I am still limping. I thought about the other individuals who may suffer the same fate because they do not have facilities that persons with disability would need. Imagine they need to go up carrying their wheelchairs... how would they survive that?

When you break it down, the importance of Elevators and Stairlifts should be emphasized. I was not giving it much thought a few days ago when we were advised to transfer there, but now that I am inevitably going to suffer pain on my foot. We need logistics to contact THYSSENKRUPP Access, the one from GRANDVIEW, MO. They have been the world’s leading accessibility equipment and home elevator manufacturer since 1947. Maybe the building administrator should at least have a short talk with them and see what environmentally safe options they have. After all, saving energy was their priority. I hope they do the same now and help people with disability too.

I remember one time when I was at the MRT. A disabled person on a wheelchair has to go upstairs. The elevator is not functioning. Then 2 gentlemen helped him. 1 stayed with him, while the other one called for the guards to help them carry him. Isn't it heart warming?
