I have never been more proud to call myself a guardian.

Edit2: I’d rewrite this if I could do it over again. I should have made it more about him and how he inspired us. We didn’t do this out of pity. His perseverance is what’s inspiring, not that we did what we should have done. Edit:Thanks to everyone giving us praise but the guy we helped is the hero. After getting kicked and mocked for weeks he never gave up! What I and the others did is what many of you would have done. What we all should do. ————————— Today I ran into a 39 year old man with a head injury when joining a group of 5 strangers from LFG. It was immediately apparent that he had communication and motor impairments. He told us that he was in a car accident and that he routinely gets kicked from fireteams. Most days he doesn't even get to try the activities he signs up for or is ridiculed and made fun of to the point that he leaves. Today the five of us decided we were gonna do whatever it took to help him get his first raid clear. We had to improvise quite a bit, as his motor skills and communication speed made this very difficult for him. Gauntlet was a no-go because of the problems he has with jumping and memory so we found a baths checkpoint and used a 5 man clockwise rotation while he killed adds in the middle. Then we got to Calus and helped keep him up in the throne room while killing adds and punching psions. It took us an hour and a half to get through Calus but the sheer joy he expressed when he did was worth every bad experience I have had in this game. Best of all, he really wanted the robes so when he didn't get them from the drop we knew he had only one chance: that insufferable sweeping bastard at the tower. But sure enough that broomed SOB gave it to him. He literally screamed when he got it. After my road trip, I am gonna help him get the Solstice Missions done. Funny, I think it was even more rewarding for the five of us than it was for him. Moral of the story, have a heart. Don't mock people with disabilities and do your best to lend them a hand. It was the best decision I have made in awhile.

    • [quote]Today I ran into a 39 year old man with a head injury when joining a group of 5 strangers from LFG.[/quote] I think the most impressive thing is 5 randoms banning together to help him. My clan has helped many through the raids... and a few required A LOT of patience, but we are a team that plays together every day so not as tough as 5 strangers coming together and sticking it out. Well done guardian! P.S. Ignore the trolls who responded, perhaps pity them a bit, because those keyboard warriors are just sad, miserable people ;)

            This kind of patience is important in general. A little empathy goes a long way. Personally, I stutter. I'm one of the few people who carried it into adulthood. In my personal life, it's not a big issue. I explain why I sound like that and we move on. It's extremely rare for a person to have an issue with it. If anything, they're impressed with how I brush it off and carry on, especially in my professional life. BUT, in games like this, it feels -blam!-ing debilitating. I've never done a raid and it took me a couple years to get up the nerve for nightfalls. It's hard to explain, but stuff like that is nerve racking. When somebody is legitimately empathic and understanding about things like this, it means the world to that person. It doesn't take much.

            • People yank people through raids all the time. Being proud of having the biggest victim just reeks of the attitude that built this game.

              • if you were a true good person you would keep it confidential instead of publicly posting this and expecting praise (for playing a videogame?) while exposing the disabled person to everyone , I really don't wanna disregard the fact you helped which is nice , but bragging about it like this online pretty much negates it in my eyes.

                • Back in my day when you did something nice for someone you didn't go around bragging about it. You said it yourself though. You did it for you, not him.

                  • I sometimes game and help with a group of autistic adults that live in a group home i came across on Destiny 1 a few years ago. But i don't go around writing cheesy ass stories about it. What am i supposed to say here. They are the real heros? Oh, the cringe.

                    • You sir are what humanity is meant to be. Don't listen to the trolls. Those are people who've failed at life and don't understand what it means to be selfless thus they are interpreting your story as a cry for attention (visavi social media). Anyone with half a heart understands that this story is meant to serve as an example of what a guardian in destiny should be and i for one thank you for giving the little guy a chance to have the same experiences we ALL take for granted daily. We can all learn something from people like you. As well we all should.

                    • I am both super proud and super ashamed. Proud that guardians like yourself behave with decency and show some humanity. Ashamed at the pathetic low life guardians who get their kicks out of kicking people while they’re down. Respect

                    • Nothing but utmost respect to you and your team. An incredible show of decency which has actually restored some faith in humanity for me. We aren’t all bad as humans. You can choose to love and respect or degrade and demonise. The former are champions, the latter are despicable.

                    • That’s an awesome thing you guys did, and you have my utmost respect. Congratulations to the Guardian, whom despite personal issues, was able to not give up and accomplish what he set out to do, and that RN Jesus smiled upon him for his accomplishment. When I think of the Destiny community, this is what I want to remember them for, always willing to help others. This is what made me proud to be a part of back in D1, and I hope that this is something that others can look upon, and bring back to this community. We all need to learn patience and learn to help others, because we never know what taking a little bit of our time can mean to the people whom we help.

                        • Gnarly! I've experienced a little mocking myself on here, and have been booted from teams before because of a disability of my own, so I can understand a bit how that guy feels. I think it's awesome that you guys did that. And, to those saying that this is just "bragging" for attention... Even if this is what you'd call "bragging", it's a way more worthwhile brag than all of the other "brag-posts" that I've seen on here - i.e. "I solo'd '________'.", "World's first at '_________'.", "I can tell you how to beat/get through '________'.", or "I was finally able to '________'." Even though, I'd say this is just a post sharing a good, inspirational experience; if you must believe it's a "brag-post", at least it's worthwhile.
