Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,127 People

    There's a kid at my school,

    I'm not going to use his real name, so I'm gonna call him Jeff. Everyone makes fun of Jeff, because he has a stutter and a mental disability. He's actually really nice and only learned English 4 years ago, he moved from China. Everyone picks on him and I hate it

    I always believe one thing never laugh at

    others never. You never know the next moment the same trouble you might face. I hate people who think great about themselves even tho there are no greatness in them. We all are humans & we all do have some or other problems in life.

    I was friends with a girl

    that had special needs since kindergarten. She was really funny, kind, caring, and so much more. Everyone loved her and she loved everyone back. When kids that didn't know her, stared at her and made bad comments it made me angry. She may be a little slower than most of us and...

    Seeing people giggle at the kids with

    disabilities sickens me. If I had to pick my biggest pet peeve it would federally be that.special ed children are special and need help from people as a community. When I see kids at school make fun of the boy with Down syndrome I can't help myself from going off

    I have a very close family friend

    who has autism. And he goes to school with me. When ever I see him in the hallways I make sure that I give him a hug and ask him how his day is. I hate when other people make fun of the special needs kids at my school. It makes me wanna punch them in the face.

    My step brother Drew is physically

    and mentally disabled. He has the mentality of a 7 year old on good days, but on bad days it's that of 2 or 3 year old. He's my buddy and I have on more than one occasion used my size to intimidate those who look at him with disdain or giggle when he walks by.

    I happen to be a disabled person.

    My disabilities stem from being brain dead for 9 minutes when I was born premature. As a result of that I have static brain damage and that has caused me to be severly hearing impaired and I have seizures and other neurological problems but I look beyond my limitations and try...

    Ive heard people saying the meanest things

    about the disabled children in my school. It hurts me to think that kids can be so mean. They act as if it's the persons fault for being different. And honestly, it's the disabled people that give the nicest smiles and most joyful laughs I've ever heard.

    What's wrong with people like that?

    My boyfriend is a quadriplegic,

    and one of my biggest pet peeves is when someone tells me what a "good person" I am because I'm with him. Dating someone in a wheelchair doesn't make me a good person, it just doesn't make me a shallow *******.
