When I was a kid, there were no “special needs” kids. There were “handicapped” kids and “retarded” kids, and they were separated from the rest of us in every way possible. They went to different classes in a different part of the school. I felt sorry for them, and when other kids made fun of them on the bus, it broke my heart.
But I didn’t do anything. I was too afraid.
