This leads to my next story of a severe Autistic man, Owen Suskind, who was a child who loved to watched many Disney movies. As time went on, he had developed a method of communication by remembering the quotes from Disney films.
Here's an interview with Owen and his family presented by ABC's Good Morning America shown on July 1st, 2016.
...And this is coming from a man who has a form of Autism, known as Asperger syndrome. Yes, I, Xebs has Asperger syndrome. I was diagnosed at the age of 7-years-old, I had many up and downs and turnarounds. But what has truly made me the person I am today is thanks to Disney. The strong men, women and sidekicks in scenarios of adventure, loss, love, bravery, hope, laughter and etc. are scenarios that have inspired me to become the better person I am today.
Just a side note, the amount of Youtube videos praising Disney on this particular social media site is very low. Constantly, you're bombarded with videos like "Top 10 Disturbing Things About Disney" or "Top 10 Shocking Facts About Disney". Just to be clear, it's ok to make lists like this. However, there's no equalisation or counter video that provides positive information on what Disney has contributed, to those like the blind Brazilan man or Owen Suskind.
An addition, Kingdom Hearts has made me even a greater person. With its ideas of friendship, defeating the "heartless" [person] to reach your goal, the fight between yourself (the light and darkness), saying I'm a person, not a "nobody", but someone who does exist and has emotions and feelings. So many ways you can interpret the Kingdom Hearts series, however, this is what I gathered from the story and ideas.
What do you guys think? Does Disney or Kingdom Hearts bring the best out of you as a person? Write your comments down below:
Update: The blind 21-year-old man is named, Basílio Santana.
