Dr. Stephen Haas and his family are from Charlotte, North Carolina, and they were visiting the Ships and Sea Museum in Savannah, Georgia, where Stephen's wife is from. Their 11-year-old daughter, Lexi, is in a wheelchair because she suffers a brain dysfunction called Kernicterus. Apparently, the museum told them Lexi's wheelchair would make the carpets in the place dirty, so they offered her another wheelchair. She wasn't able to get into it, and the family couldn't go to the museum.
Really? This is wrong. The museum doesn't request visitors to take their shoes off that drag in just as much dirt and mud. I feel for Lexi and her family.
