Every now and then you read something that makes you feel happy and also makes you think “WHY WAS THIS NOT A THING ALREADY?!” I just came across a story while perusing very serious news sources (read: from my Facebook newsfeed) about groups of people who are painting parking spaces purple. These new purple spaces will be respectfully designated for wounded vets. I think that it absolutely amazing! And again, why is this not already a thing?! Veterans in general deserve so much respect! And those who have become disabled as a result of their service definitely deserve all of the help they can get! A purple parking space may seem trivial, but it’s a sign of respect. I commend the businesses who are adding these spaces and hope that more follow suit. Though, I do hope that they convert regular spaces and don’t take away from already blue spaces. They should convert the closest blue spaces to purple and then add a couple more blue in the regular spaces. That would be my own suggestion.
