We all feel the need to be close to other people, a need for love and embrace. Too often we judge others and keep them at arm’s length.
In this video by Pro Infirmis, a Swiss organization that helps people with disabilities, a man dressed in a cuddly bear costume walks around a street offering people hugs. But underneath that costume he’s hiding something.
Pro Infirmis conducts an experiment: there are only a few people who don`t have empathy with disabled people. Nevertheless, the passenger seat in the public bus next to Fabian often stays empty. Handicapped people are a regular part of our society. So, get closer.
What ever you do, don’t let other people’s prejudices stop you from seeing all humans as equals. Everyone is deserving of our love and hugs.
