Lack of empathy is a shame

Regarding "Misusing handicap placards" (May 13): There are many impairments that qualify a person for use of a handicap placard.

Those disabilities include heart and lung disease, limited mobility and a diminished or lost use of lower extremities.

The lack of an obvious physical disability does not necessarily constitute the misuse or abuse of a placard.

It's a shame that we are so quick to criticize and condemn those for what we don't know, rather than feeling empathy and perhaps a bit of gratitude that we personally don't have to use one.
