My perspective: Why I prefer to walk

This is a question that I am often asked by agents when I go to the airport.  Hopefully my response will make sense.  At least it does to me.

I believe that everyone, including me, has a right to choose how I wish to be assisted when I get to an airport.  I personally find that walking is easier for me and for the agent assisting me and that it is also faster.

I know that this is a very common problem for blind and vision impaired travelers and I still cannot understand why agents feel that it is easier for them to push me in a wheelchair rather than let me take their arm.  I have some thoughts but I am going to keep those under my thumb for now.

Suffice it to say that I prefer to walk beside someone as opposed to being pushed in a wheelchair.
