Down Syndrome

True Meaning of Empathy

my growing boy with his bicycle

We were once again at the park and upon watching my boy having fun with his bicycle riding I thought to blog. It has been days since I posted this video and until now the inspiration I got upon watching it kind of moved me that it stays with me until now.


I was touched by this viral video that I happened to share at Facebook about kids with Autism and the page featured a boy with Down syndrome and how his elder brother protect him from people who laughs at his brothers’ condition. I was quite in awe on how the children were raised and how the parents made a good job on raising the kids.
This video made me think about the importance of taking responsibilty, of taking care of another family member. Of protecting the weak at a very young age. That it is not all sad having kids with this condition. As the father said, it is the best thing that ever happened to him. And he earns my respect with the statement. That it is possible for them to be happy inspite of. Actually, made me cry, and being played how many times, it seems that I cannot get enough of these two brothers’ perfect showing of unconditional love.
Here, we can say that in a family, we are each other’s keepers.
