My Very “Special ” Needs Grandchild’s World

Submitted by Fifi Harris:

My very “Special ” needs Grandchild .Our Grandson Banjo is in the special needs category. I have learned so much from Banjo. He has shown me how to have a better world. Greed, Hate, Jealousy, Racism…. these are only some of the negative feelings in this world but not in Banjo’s world ! I often hug him and say “Banjo can I be in your world please?”. He just smiles with his beautiful smile and looks as if he is saying… someday Fifi, someday.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom
