Drawing: Human

Dear Oscar,

I hope you are okay. My latest drawing of you is based on the chorus to “Human” by Rag ‘n’ Bone Man. It’s my way of saying that even though you are a Paralympic athlete, who are often described as “super-humans”, you are still human and have certain insecurities, imperfections and vulnerabilities like other people do. Your great sporting achievements don’t negate this, and the authorities need to realize it.
It’s wrong for people to scapegoat you for their society’s problems. They should acknowledge and tackle them, so they can create a better future for the next generation. You are a human being with rights and feelings, and it’s not right to condemn you for one mistake. Being famous does not make someone perfect and it’s unfair to expect famous people to never make mistakes, whether they’re “role models” or not. They’re still human and it’s cruel to use them as easy targets when it comes to society’s troubles, or tear them down.
Putting the blame on you solves nothing. This needs to stop now and true justice must be done.

We are always here for you.

Love Sara. xx
