Annabel says: I read a story in the paper about a blind woman who was bullied in the street by some men in a car. They threw eggs at her, shouted and laughed before they drove away. Use this link to read more about the story:
Malak says: I heard about this too, someone did help her because she was very upset. I think it is really important to say how good it is when disabled people get help when they are being bullied. It helps us to feel that we are not alone.
Ace says: This lady was just getting more confident at using her guide dog to go out and about. Now she has been bullied like this she might be too frightened to go out. My friend Stevie is blind and she says:
“Many blind people get stuck at home because it is hard to go out if you don’t have enough help and if you are scared of being bullied. Staying at home all the time can make people feel depressed and sad, eat too much and get unhealthy, be bored and lonely and not get a chance to make new friends.”
I’m unhappy about this; disabled people should have the right to go out!
Yes! And this lady should get some support to help her build up her confidence to go out again and to be less afraid.
