Mom Wrote A Perfect Open Letter To Stranger Who Left Offensive Note On Her Car






































Justine Van Den Borne

This mom is schooling everyone on why it's not OK to make snap judgments.

Justine Van Den Borne, who lives in Melbourne, Australia, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 35 years old, according to her Facebook post. The now-41-year-old was out with her daughter earlier this month when she returned to her car -- which was parked in a handicapped-accessible spot -- she found a hurtful note from a stranger on the windshield.

"Did you forget your wheelchair???" it read.

The mom took to Facebook to explain the harm in such a post, raising awareness for the challenges people whose disabilities may not be obvious face.

"A disability doesn't always mean a person has to be wheelchair-bound but, lucky for you I one day will be," she wrote. "Before you ruin another person's day, remember you don't know everything and just because you can't see it it doesn't mean a person isn't struggling to put one foot in front of the other."

While Van Den Borne's words took off on the social media site, generating thousands of likes and shares, she said she didn't write the post to gain any personal attention -- it was all about teaching an important lesson.
