That was so powerful and touching – thank you so much for sharing that video. I hope he continues to find peace in his life and a way to use the empathy he’s gained to build something he’ll be proud of.

I’d like to say I’m inspired to promote love and harmony, but actually I’d like to personally bitch-slap everyone who said anything rotten to him.

Being from the Netherlands, I never watched Blue Power Rangers, but this is a great story, the guy is a hero, going through all this and still standing. It touches my heart!

I wanna find every person from the original production of the show that was responsible for doing this to the Blue F–king Ranger and punch them square in the face! Now, that may be contradicting to the whole concept of tolerance, but I’ll let the suits at washington decide all that. Power Rangers was arguably the greatest childrens tv show of the 90’s, it indefinitely defined my childhood, and I’m glad that David has found peace, because he absolutely deserves it!
