This video is about two men who are hospitalized and cannot leave their beds, one man is blind and the other has to get treatment for an unspecified problem. The men in the hospital have gotten along very well regardless of their disabilities, one man is in the bed closest to the window and is the one who can see. Everyday the one who can see tells the blind one what is going on outside in the park below because he cant see. After some time together they become good friends and eventually one had to go for his treatment so he can get out of the hospital. So the blind one wishes his friend the best of luck as he leaves, a few days later the nurse comes in to the room with only one tray and questions why there is only one. The nurse proceeds to tell him that the second man didn't make it through his operation, feeling sad the blind man asks for one request, to look out the window and tell him what is going on out there. She replies with "sir there is a brick wall there"
This story reminded my of the idea of inclusion in the way that even through one man wasn't capable of doing something the other could such as seeing. The man with vision tried his hardest to make the blind mans time at the hospital enjoyable, he could have never spoken to the blind man and tried to avoid conversation with him because he was "different" but instead he included the man and respected the dignity and values of him as a friend. I also believe that the demonstrated a christian perspective on being with others because it didn't require the other person to change to suit the man with vision. Also it benefited both parties by one man telling stories he had to make up because nothing was really happening outside the window and the other heard amazing stories about the people outside at the park. This video has shown a very similar viewing compared to the things we learned about a christian perspective on being with others and Inclusion
I think that the man with the vision was an overall great person, he was there for the blind man when he needed it. This is an act of kindness that is very important to the blind man, without the person who could see the other man would have been very lonely and not want to be in the hospital like that. The man with vision may have lied about all the stories he told the blind man but he did it to help him and it did, it made him see a whole new world while not actually being able to see. Overall the man may have sinned but it was for the better cause, seeing a smile on another person because of your actions is its own reward worth more then anything else.
