Down Syndrome may be a genetic disorder, but such people are not any lesser blessed children of God, and so they should be seen with the same eye as we would like to be! And yes, this people can even lead the same normal life as we do. Few days back we saw the case of Rion Holcombe who got an admission letter from Clemsen University for further studies. Rion was in-fact a much active person and would participate actively in different sports activity.
Here is a case what happened last week in Houston. Waiter Michael Garcia was visited by one of his regular customers- Kim Castillo at the Laurenzo’s Prime Rib. Castillo had come with her husband and her 5-year-old son Milo (shown in the above pic), who has a Down Syndrome. Milo, who has a slightly delayed speech was speaking some new words talking about his birthday. At this time another customer on the next table made a shoddy comment saying “Special needs children need to be special somewhere else.”
Garcia told a news channel that his personal feelings were quite hurt and told the man “’I’m not going to be able to serve you, Sir”. He further said “How could you say that? How could you say that about a beautiful 5-year-old angel?’ ”
Stumped by Garcia’s bold move Castillo later said “I know Michael [stood up for Milo] from his heart, and from reacting to the situation. I don’t think he stopped and thought about what he was doing.”
Castillo further defended her son saying “Was he loud? Maybe a little in the moment, but honestly, the adults at our table were three times louder than he was”.
Garcia for his this act towards humanity was supported by his restaurant colleagues and friends. A real man who didn’t even think for a minute about his job while making his not-so-good customers realize about their fault.
