I Have Tourette's But Tourette's Doesn't Have Me

Just watched "I Have Tourette's But Tourette's Doesn't Have Me" on Channel News Asia, and it is definitely an informative documentary. The show talked about children who have the symptom Tourette, which caused the children to do motions or make sound without them being able to control it. Below is a clip from the show that i found on youtube.

If you have ever been guilty about making fun of others' disabilities, you should really been ashamed of yourself. Stereotyped and narrow perception not only cause pain to others, especially to the affected party, but also influenced the thinking of others which made them in turn gain the same biased perception and views. I myself have been guilty of having such thoughts or even in the process unwittingly make some remarks, but i definitely never meant any harmful intentions. Then again, i just hope that people in the end will just understand that we are all the same despite any difference in physical abilities. Most importantly, relating of others is part of being human, that you will never want to cause harm to hurt others, because of our very own conscience.
