This isn't Kpop related but I hope you all keep reading.
I went to the store today to buy a couple of things I needed at home. I'm in the line waiting to get checked out and pay for my stuff. There's 2 people ahead of me. And the person in the front is a specials needs kid and I know him because I used to go to school with him. Anyway he's buying candy and soda and behind him was an older lady. The kid takes out his money and he starts counting it. He's taking a while to count his money and the lady behind him started to get frustrated cause he was taking forever. He didn't have enough money to pay for the stuff he wanted. So he turns around and ask the lady if she could help him pay for the rest of it. And the lady looked at him ugly and told him no that he needed to leave. The kid was about to walk away and i said don't leave I'll pay for your stuff and he ran up to me and started hugging me and he kept saying thank you over and over again. And I said your welcome. Well after the kid left with his stuff the older lady turned around and said why did you do that. I said because he didn't have enough money to pay for it. She goes he is dumb so you should have never helped him. I'm trying to stay calm and not go off on the lady. And I said excuse me how can you be so rude to a special needs kid. Just because he is like that doesn't mean he is different from us. I said you are very rude and a cold hearted person and the lady just kept starring at me ugly and she didn't say anything back and she walked away. When I was leaving and as I was walking back to my car I saw the kid and he was crying. So I walked up to him and asked him what was wrong and he said that was really mean what the lady said and I told him not listen to people that say rude stuff to you because you are none of those things she said. You are very bright and smart. And he smiled and gave me a hug.
It makes me mad when people treat kids with special needs different from us. Hello they have feelings like we do. And some kids that are like that are really smart. I have a cousin that is like that and he is very smart and bright. I think people with special needs are the most kind hearted people ever.
I just wanted to share this with you all.
