gets me every time

Pro Infirmis conducts an experiment: there are only a few people who don`t have empathy with disabled people. Nevertheless, the passenger seat in the public bus next to Fabian often stays empty. Handicapped people are a regular part of our society.

So, get closer.

The audio track "The Funeral" is by courtesy of "The Band Of Horses" from the album "Everything All the Time":

This is the only video that's ever brought me to tears because growing up, I was a kids with cerebral palsy only. Everyone thought he was too wierd or ugly to talk to. I was his only friend. He then had a brain tumor with I think he recovered from. I lost track him over the years but I was overwhelmed when I saw him going nuts dancing at my senior homecoming, 6 years later. I wish you the best John Carpenter.

Every time i watch this video I remember a friend of mine back in high school named Kelly. A little Asian boy who had downs syndrome who was in a grade before myself. We had met through a program held by my gym class at the time, in which each student would train one of the students in the special ed class for an upcoming Special Olympics event that took place every year just in the other town. Kelly and I met each others eyes once both classes were introduced to each other, and decided to e partners that very moment. Now truth be told, both of us were very nervous at first but once an introduction was made and a little help from Kelly's AID, Kelly and i soon became friends.

Every day we trained for the events he was participating in, If I remember correctly they were running, shot put, and pool noodle throwing (to replace javelins). Every day Kelly would show up ready and pumped up for what the next day had in store for us, and to be honest I was excited to hang out with Kelly.

Eventually the day of the Special Olympics arrived and Kelly myself and a few of his friends all sat together on the bus singing songs to get each other pumped for the big day. To start it off each school that participated in the days events did a walk around the track to be announced which school they had come from. The athletes and us trainers were to walk side by side waving and smiling to give off a good impression. Most of the other "trainers" were not so fond of this and just merely shied off to the side of the track during our walk. i had noticed this and told Kelly that we should get extra excited to bring the spirits back to everyone. Low and behold, it did!

The days events went on as they would normally, with the athletes participating while the trainers would stand on the sidelines and cheer everyone on, even if they were not from our own school. Kelly ended up winning 3rd in the running event he took place in, 4th in shot put, and 2nd in noodle throw.
