We are a cynical society. We love to scoff at things we don’t understand and tend to dismiss them without fully realizing the consequences of said actions. When someone says they have “anxiety” and enter an establishment with a service animal, we wonder why we can’t bring our “pets” into those places as well. We don’t get the need for such a companion, nor do we recognize how lost and afraid the person would be without them.
