Where is the Love?

While I was chatting with Leah tonight she told me of a heart wrenching thing that happened to her and my son Axel today.
The two of them went for a walk in town today and Leah noticed 4 or 5 well dressed boys,eating burgers (or what ever they put in their hamburgers), walking towards them, Leah could tell they were talking about Axel because she could see they looking at him. When the boys got next to them, one of the boys spat at Axel, right in front of Leah. She said Axel looked up at her like,what did I do for that boy to do that to me. When Leah told me this, I was heart broken.

What the heck is wrong with people? I know that in this particular country they consider any children with disabilities disposable, but come on, I mean, why can't they see that these children are loving, giving, kind and would not hurt anyone. Just because some of these children don't look "normal" doesn't mean they don't have feelings, look at my little girl Angela, we could just be sitting together watching t.v. and she will look up at me and say "Dean, I Love You". Do you think there is some feelings there? How can people treat these sweet precious children so poorly?

What would you do, being in a foreign country not knowing their language, if this happened to you and your child?
