The more I read stories like this, the more I come to the realization that there are people in the world who’s DNA is loaded with hate and feelings of exclusion, supremacy, and privilege to think that they can say and do to others unlike them, with no consequences; what gives them the right and freedom to constantly degrade and demean people unlike themselves?

I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel all over the world on flights with children of all ages and I can even remember a time with my own child on a flight(s) when they were younger, crying non-stop from the irritation of being up in the air and confined to a very small space on a plane.

Now that my son and daughter are at an age where it doesn’t bother them as much to air travel as it did when they were younger, my wife and I do not worry about how other people on  a flight may feel or whether or not they are inconvenienced by our family’s presence! We sympathize for the parent(s) and child that was disrespected and violated, this man should have never said what he did or put his hands on an innocent child no matter what their ethnicity; he should be charged to the full extent of the law!
