This man is an inspiration to absolutely every human in the world, especially in the Western world. Hatred is easily the most detrimental notion in our society today. Christian's story highlights the significance of widespread acceptance of people's differences and the impact that compassion and love can have on somebody's life. If we as a united population can apply these lessons on a national scale, many of the issues driving the division of our culture could be reasonably and responsibly addressed. Take some time to go out of your way to learn about someone else's life- their dreams and fears, beliefs and opinions, their passions and loves. Only through honest human connections can our society save itself from cultural and literal extinction.
