    Link: Compassion Isn`t Dead Yet - On Disability Awareness Day an autistic man sings the National Anthem but runs into trouble. The crowd helps him finish.

    Bah! it`s easy to feel compassion for an autistic guy, nobody would laugh or scorn him, so it`s not a good gauge to measure compassion.

    @ yoda141

    you have never watch someone that has special needs or watched the people that stare at them thinking they should not be in public. this is a great video, it shows people helping someone how needs help. how often do you see that?? if you was to see this guy having problems in everyday life, would you stop and help, or would you stop and watch?? REALLY think about it before you say "but of course i would help!!!" REALLY think. because most people wont.

    Apparently the phrase "humanity at its finest" does not apply to IAB members.

    Shame on anybody who makes a joke about this man--he just did something greater than most of you will ever do in your lives.

    "Shame on anybody who makes a joke about this man--he just did something greater than most of you will ever do in your lives."

    my previous post was a joke, just as i hope this is. are you serious? im not condoning poking fun at disabled people, but this accomplishment for him is comparable to something like passing an important test, sure it was difficult and took some practise, but that`s it. its not better than the greatest things people do with their lives, even an IABer`s lives.

    I have an autistic son. I also have a very un PC sense of humor. So you see, I have a duality about me that is a bitch to live with sometimes. Let`s just say I commend this young man, and the fans that helped him. And I`ll save my un PC humor for things that don`t affect me personally...

    The guy`s laugh is hilarious. I wonder what was making him laugh so hard. I bet one of his friends was making faces at him or he was just really nervous.

    heres my problem with the National Anthem. its supposed to be lead by the singer, not preformed for everyone to listen to it. every single person there should be singing from the very first word. this applies to the small games, and all the way up to the world series, or super bowl or whatever the event is.
