Tell Us Your Kindness Story
The boy with Down syndrome

So i used to work for my mother at a daycare because it was the summer and i was the oldest kid there and there was the littler boy named Wesley and we were best friends and the other little kids would always make fun of him because he had down syndrome and that is a type of condition that you can be born with. He was very sad and i felt very bad for him so i went over and told the little kids that it isn't nice to make fun of people with illnesses and they said "But the way he talks, drupes, and acts isn't cool". Then i went over to Wesley and told him show them who's is boss then Wesley went over to tell them " i am a brave little boy and nobody can bring me down". Then the little children start to feel bad and i didn't like the way they felt and so i started to show them that it is OK to have illnesses and that you can be different. So now everyday i go to my mother's daycare i always go to see Wesley and his new friends and we dance together, sing together, and also talk about everyone's differences. so this is a lesson do not treat other people different because of there illness or if they are made a certain way .
