Today is my anniversary...

Pin It Now!

Today is my anniversary, but I am going to postpone that post for a few days to share something more important. If you haven't already, today is the day to "Spread the word to end the word". I have never been one to use the r-word, in fact it has never come out of my mouth with a negative meaning...I seriously think that it has come out of my mouth like twice ever, and only using it for it's actual definition. ANYWAY the power of words it GREAT! Words can easily build you up, or even easier tear you down. Even when you are just throwing a word out there in a "harmless" manor, you can greatly offend the people around you.

I have NEVER liked the r-word, and this subject hits close to home for me. I have a cousin who was born with Down Syndrome. Although I don't get to see him very much, I LOVE my cousin, and am SOO proud of him. I really can't imagine him being any other way, and am SO proud of him for many things, one of which is GRADUATING high school this year!!!

Even though March 3rd is the date noted, this is an ongoing campaign! PLEASE visit to show your support.

Pledge to Show Respect
When you say “retard” or “retarded,”
you marginalize and insult millions of people
with intellectual disabilities, their families and friends.
Please, don’t use the R-word.
