There are probably few things that make a parent’s heart sink as much as learning that their child is somehow disabled. Not because they don’t love their child just the same, but because of the fear of how the rest of the world will treat them. Kids are known to be cruel, so sending your child to school every day where they might be potentially ridiculed is always a difficult thing. Sometimes, however, kids can surprise us with their humanity, giving hope for the future.
This story definitely shows the latter. Let’s make it a point to teach our children the power of love, kindness and acceptance so that maybe one day, no parent will ever have to fear for their disabled child again.
