Pro Infirmis Get closer

Pro Infirmis conducts an experiment: there are only a few people who don`t have empathy with disabled people. Nevertheless, the passenger seat in the public bus next to Fabian often stays empty. Handicapped people are a regular part of our society.
So, get closer.

Free hugs are always good! Too bad many people only look at the appearance of other people. They would never had hugged Fabian ... :(

And what if it was a pedophile in that suit ? Or a terrorist ? Or a rapist ?
That's cool to show images with music to try to make us feel some emotion out of it. Look at the video without the sound and imagine it's just a robot in that suit. And who says it wouldn't have been the same if the disabled person did this without the suit but with one of those "free hughs" sign ?
At least the first free hugh guy was going in raw with himself. And he wasn't very attractive.
Or am I one of those people who doesn't feel empathy ?

Well, staying clear of disabled/sick people we do not know is a self-preservation mechanism built in by evolution but we are slowly understanding that we don't need to do that anymore...

Well when we all become emotionless vulcans, then you all can have your world were we all accept each other as equals. Yeah thats not gonna happen anytime soon :|

#(removed comment) You are a completely and utterly idiot.

#4 It's not quite a guilt, it's more like "face the facts and see the reality, stupid!" But since you see it that way, it looks like you admitted your guilt - indifferent and ignorant.

#5 Indeed, you're one of those people who doesn't feel empathy, at all!

#6 Even a small pat on the back, a shake hand or a hug can/make a change. But in your case looks like it can't. So for the likes of you there's an expression: FOREVER ALONE!

#12 I find your stupidity impressive... most impressive!
