A Lesson In Acceptance

So, I heard about this on the radio today and suprsingly enough it made me tear up. I know, hold your gasps and pick your jaws up off of the floor.

This video was taken at Fenway Park during Disabilty Awareness Day. Apparently they did a lot of great things for kids with varying disabilities. They had a guy sing the National Anthem and about half way thru he gets tickled and begins to stumble over the song. I mean, really, it is not an easy song to sing, much less in front of a huge crowd!

When he had a hard time finishing the song the crowd jumped in to help him out. What a great lesson in empathy. People could have been rude, they could have laughed, they could have embarrassed him, but they helped him make a moment to remember by helping him out. They even gave him a standing ovation.

I bet he will never forget that! I wish everyone in the world treated people with disabilities just like this! If they did, the world would be a better place!
