General public can be so cruel. Age, race, educational background, I think most of us have seen it come from all directions. Poking fun or becoming annoyed at the challenged or handicapped. Kids can be so mean, but I have seen adults be just as cruel. Sometimes it isn't just what they are doing, it's as much as what they're not doing.
Cas has a son with autism. He is 19 years old. Cas has written beautiful stories about her son. She has also shared some that are so sad. The way people mistreat her and her son when they are out in public.
Maybe it's ignorance or fear that brings bad behavior out in people.
But not all people are like that.
Cas posted this video. It's Disability Awareness Day at Fenway Park. This boy, with challenges, tries to make it through the national anthem, but gets a case of the giggles. The whole stadium helps him out.
I giggled with him and I smiled knowing the ignorant people that don't know how to embrace differences, are out numbered by those who do.
I know you'll smile too.
