There are many special needs kids in the world and yet only so few are accepted. I never had this in my family but I do know one of my friends who has a brother with a special need. In my new high school, it bewildered me how many students accepted them and I was never faced with such a dilemma. I had never before come to think of them at all. I saw people with disabilities before but never so many. The group Best Buddies was something that helped these special kids. Some of them seemed to have more needs than others. I began to accept them after a while, I learned more about them as well. Some have their own struggle just by remembering who and where they even are. I had a few conversations with a student that had a hearing problem. It was a unique experience that I will never forget. Thus, there is much judgment against them, they are bullied and judged by who they are, and I have become aware of that. This is something that is an ongoing problem, and it is very sad of these illnesses, but there are people who will help, and that makes the world all the better.
