I watch them as they stare
look right past me ..
STOP! I scream inside my head
JUST FUCKING STOP
my son is a thinking, feeling human being
who happens to be developmentally disabled
he is kind, funny, generous, trusting, capable
one of the most amazing men on Earth
ignorant people like you ..
people who snicker and stare
don’t deserve to walk on the
same side of the street with him
