I was picked on at school for being different and consistently pointed and laughed at in public. So much so that all growing up I hated young kids and always felt anxiety going out in public, I never knew when the next time I would be felt to feel like less than a person. But it wasn't until recently did I realize that they weren't laughing at me to be mean, they were laughing because they didn't know how to respond. As I have gotten older I started to smile and wave at children that point and laugh, and they normally respond well and wave back. I think maturing I realized it is my responsibility to teach the world about difference and accepting people of all walks of life. It is my belief that by helping (younger) individuals accept and keep an open mind  about individuals with disabilities they will be more likely to accept other types of people. In all of my years of being bullied and laughed at I never met anyone that was just “mean”, they just didn’t understand me. Most people just don’t know how to interact with individuals such as my self. I think that education is the key to stopping or at least decreasing the epidemic of bullying. I am aware that this is a heavy undertaking but I truly feel that education will help decrease the spread of the plague of intolerance; i think it is more of a proactive approach rather than a reactive one.

 
Would you have a child if there was a 50% chance they would have a severe medical disorder?
