‘Down syndrome is literally the most beautiful thing that’s ever happened in my life,’
Robb Scott is a father to a 5-year-old boy with Down Syndrome, and has always been proud of raising an adorable and loving boy. But when Scott overheard another father uneducatedly telling his son what Down syndrome was an “illness of not knowing anything,” he said nothing in the moment.
This had him eating up inside. According to him, he let another generation continue with ‘ignorance’. He felt as if he failed his son in more ways than just one.
To make justice, he made this extremely emotional video, where he asserts that having a son with Down Syndrome was the most beautiful thing that’s ever happened to him.
“If you want my son to teach you how to be the CEO of a business, it’s not going to happen. He’s not going to be a world-class runner. But if lessons of love and caring and acceptance and honesty are important to you, there is no better teacher. He had taught me so much.”
