Shoutout – I am Thankful for the Kind Children Who Don’t Judge
Shoutout to the little girls at the MacEwan playground on Thursday, who were so kind to my son.
He is a teenager, and is quite obviously “different” (developmentally delayed). He was with his caregiver walking past the playground, probably skipping and laughing as he often does.
These girls ran over to meet him and took the time to find out what he likes, and when they found out his favourite thing is music, they sang to him!! My son was in heaven!
I hope those little girls keep their attitude of open-minded acceptance and friendliness forever. In their world and his, everyone’s a friend!
It sure is a nice change from ignorant people who just stare rudely when they see someone who is “different”.
