Wow! Connor is a wonderful young man and a fantastic big brother. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. Then again, who would not be crying after watching such a touching story. Yasher Koach to these parents for raising such fine children! :-)

Total Righteousness

True exceptionalism! Took my breath away. I saw in this boy a lot of what was in my own children, who acted as the older siblings (though they were in actuality the younger sibs) of a brother who was severely handicapped; they would do anything for him, and tolerated no insults or put-downs from other ignorant kids. Such sensitivity - gives immense strength to the parents, I might add. Additionally: there is a Yeshiva whose mission statement of Torah along with Kindness embodies this in practice throughout its very integrated classrooms, hallways, and playing fields, and deserves public acclaim: Yeshiva Darchei Torah, Far Rockaway, NY. Would that they were not a singular institution in this way; May Rabbi Bender shlita and his Yeshiva serve as an example for the whole Yeshiva system worldwide.
