Sam is a teenager with autism. When he was offered a position to work at Starbucks Sam told his parents that his life had meaning.
Sam’s particular type of autism creates a movement disorder. Most people make fun of Sam, but his manager Chris believed in him. They turned his movements into dance and now Sam is known as “the dancing barista.”
There are many people who would have rather Sam not been born, as they figure his life has no meaning. The “Sams” of the world need to be more than SEEN; they need to be appreciated and respected.
Thank you Chris for seeing what God wanted you to see in Sam.
