Renowned geneticist Dr. Jerome Lejeune once said,
“Look at a child as a child first, his disability second. Love the child unconditionally and the child will bloom.”
If we do this, we see them as God does;
“The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outside of a person. But the Lord looks at what is in the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7
So this is exactly what happened a couple of weeks back at the #HAPPYWEEKEND’s Starry Starry Night Prom for young persons with disabilities and their buddies. If we could freeze time, it would be that moment when everyone was dancing and just having so much fun together. There were no barriers, just pure love.
Many thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors who made the event possible!
