It’s a little bit too late, to put that one down in the books. This man was judged for being different, and not for the great accomplishment that he gave to the world. His life was a living hell after what they don’t to a hero. We need to start thinking before we judge people. We have not walked two steps in anyone’s shoes but our own and because someone lives, behaves, or look different from you or I, we judge. Wake up! The damage has been done.
