Bullying is never okay. How many of us remember being left to sit alone at lunch by ourselves because we were different or unpopular? Sometimes, without our knowledge, our the hearts of our parents would break for us—that is, if we told them.
I want to share a Facebook post by one mother, Leah Paske, who’s well aware of how her son with autism is shunned in school, and she admits to becoming emotional when she found out the school had a special guest come to visit, and he chose to sit with her son at lunch on this one day.
One has to wonder why Leah Paske’s son is left to sit alone on any day. And one has to wonder if Travis Rudolph ever experienced what Leah Paske’s son experiences every day. On any and all accounts, what Rudolph did was beautiful. Cheers to this young man!
