Standing Up for the Vulnerable

Milo Castillo

There are lots of stories of people doing dumb, stupid things. Then there are stories of people doing the right thing. I like those kinds of stories. And I especially like stories of regular folks taking a stand for the defenseless.

Here’s how this one goes down:

Family goes to their usual restaurant with their little boy, Milo. Milo has Down syndrome.

Another family at the restaurant makes disparaging comments about how special needs kids should be separated from regular people. In response? The waiter refuses to serve them. Well played, waiter.

Story gets out, people flock to the restaurant to shake his hand and congratulate him. Well played, humanity.
