What Would You Do?

This video is making the rounds on blogs of other parents who have children with Down syndrome. I had a few FB friends say they would not watch it because it was appalling, and exploited the young actor in the film. I disagree, as he was a willing participant in the experiment. I do believe though, that it had to hurt to hear what the belligerent actors said regardless of being in on the scheme, how could it not? I wanted to give Josh a hug afterwards.

I think it showed how most people respond to verbal attacks on someone with a special needs. They look away and try to get away as fast as possible. Likely because so many people are afraid, this world can be dangerous and you never know what kind of reaction the disgruntled or rude or simply ignorant person may have. Does he have a gun? A knife?

HOWEVER, I know how I would have reacted, I would have been in the persons face and defending the worker. I have always been protective, but even more so now. What would you have done, would you have said "I do not want to get involved" ? Next time you see something like this happen, think of this little video and how it made you feel to sit and watch people do nothing.
