Strangers make fun of my brother

I have a brother who isn’t exactly mentally retarded, but he’s a slow learner. He has great friends but, when we’re out, people make fun of him. Whenever he hears names being yelled at him, he is deeply hurt. What should I do?

 

Dear Distressed Sis,

You are a wonderful sister and good person. Next time people are mean, say to your brother, “What fools! Don’t pay attention to them,” or, “They don’t know that you’re worth 100 of them.” The support and love of a sister can outweigh the criticism and jibes of strangers. And I bet you have already educated more people than you realize.
