Loving Parents Build DIY Blockbuster For Son
This kind of made me tear up — it’s so nice to see people understanding other human beings just so well, just so specifically, after this young man’s parents built him a blockbuster shelf after the blockbuster in his hometown shut down due to the fact that — you know — it’s a Blockbuster. The young man however is autistic, and it leads him to be focused on certain regularities in his life, and the Blockbuster was one of them.
So what do you do when such an important part of your regular day to day goes missing? Well, this young man’s parents had an incredible idea — build their own Blockbuster! The shelf is a masterpiece, stocked with a robust selection of children’s titles and the familiar blue sign that showcases just where you’re getting your videos from.
This is beautiful, and for so many reasons. There’s the love, the pure love the parents have for their son. Then there’s the itch scratched — life is changing around us rapidly, and even though something like Blockbuster, print media, or even watching TV in full screen rather than wide screen might seemed doomed for the rubbish bin, they mean something to us. They were there with us throughout key moments of our lives, comforting us and fulfilling us the way an old coffee shop or field would do the same. Seeing it returned, and in the world of a parent’s love — is truly beautiful.
