What if someone stares at my sibling with Down syndrome?


  1. What an excellent video. It is such good advice for anyone to not be defensive and assume the worst in people. Thanks for sharing that!

  2. Excellent clip. I confess that I find myself unintentionally staring at people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. I see them, get lost in a thought and/or prayer, and 10 seconds later realize that I've been rudely staring at them the entire time. It's not malicious -- it's sympathetic/empathetic -- and I feel embarrassed for staring. This clip was wonderfully understanding of those of us who stare "for the right reasons" (if you'll forgive such an expression).
