This could have been YOU. Or your mom. Or your dad. Or your child. Or someone else you may be traveling with.
Last December it was me. Because of this, I’m hoping it won’t be YOU or anyone else.
I was loud. I am now proud. More than anything I’m thankful to the TSA for hearing me and now asking me to share my story, together with them, so it doesn’t happen to others. I’m grateful that my kids, and others, can see that something positive can come from a negative.
I’m grateful that my story, and the video I worked on with the TSA can help travelers to make sure they know the best way to travel through security, can be a mini reminder for agents on their role to keep passengers safe while being respectful and sensitive.
I’m glad it happened to me. I, fortunately, have a chance to make a difference. I hopefully have. I purposefully chose to capture the situation to share with you. I now, proudly, am sharing more so others who travel with illness make sure to know the protocol.
So, please, watch the video. Know your rights. Pass this along. Remember, the TSA is here to protect us. Not hurt us. As a mom, I am very proud that my children know that I stood up for my rights and because of it others will be helped in the future.
