Barrett has been through more in his first year than any one person should ever endure. He looked up at me and said, “Don’t you get it, I’m Gandhi”. I interpret that to mean that he is a leader and humanitarian that deserves the same respect that a man like Gandhi would receive. I know that his journey will pave the way for other children suffering with his difficulties to be emancipated from their suffering due to lack of compassion from their caregivers, society and medical professionals. Barrett has forced us to have faith, knowing that all of the logic in the world is not enough to survive everything that life gives us.
