Emphasizes the good Disney does



I was at Disney World the time the gays paid a visit, and realized that Disney World could not have refused them admittance due to their sexual preference. It would have been breaking the law. ... I also realize that there are a few other reasons for the boycott, but sometimes I feel all we see are the bad things people do.

I would like for everyone to know of something good Disney World does. It donates three days at Disney World free to children with life-threatening diseases. This includes free parking and very special treatment to these children. How do I know this? My granddaughter has neuroblastoma cancer. She is only 4 years old. I was with her when she got the chance to go there. If Disney World had shut the doors to keep the gays out, it would have also been shutting the doors to children who may never have another chance to go to Disney World.

I don't know if you have seen first hand what these children go through just for the chance to live. I have and it just breaks my heart. Most of these children go through a lot of pain and suffering very gallantly. I thank God every day that there are still people in this world who do care and try to bring a little happiness to these children's lives. Disney World is one such place. ...

I know the Disney Corp. has made a few bad judgment calls in its business but they are still doing a lot of good for a lot of people. It would be nice if we as people would start looking and emphasizing the good and stop dwelling on the bad.
