recently had an experience of trying to find a rental property for a parapelegic in a wheelchair. He was on a fixed income and Had an Orginization helping him with first and last. I was amazed at the Home Owners lack of caring. They did everything they could not to rent to this man and his 72 year old mother, who takes care of him. The Owners would not let him bring his working dogs, or let him , at his own expense, make a ramp to get in the door. I searched for handicapp rentals and there were none in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. I can not stress enough to agents and Owners Please try to think "if that were you". I took other clietns out the next day that were not handicapp and the Owners were even going down on the listed price.. You would think it would be the opposite way around. This is not the way Real Estate is suppose to be. I read a praywr in my grandfathers prayer book, that was many years old and tattered. In it the Prayer went
"Cities are for needs and wants, that can not be met in isolation. Have we expected from them too much? Spur us to renew our cities as the earth is renewed in the spring, that families may have decent living space, that the poor may have hope fullfilled, that the sick and aged may be treated like persons. May our cities be filled with love, truly homes and not mearly structures."
The Christophers wrote this. The prayers were sanctioned by the vatican, and copyrighted and edited by Rev Maurus Fitzgarald O.F.M.
It is amazing that you can read something old that fits in modern day so well.
