Please Watch

For anyone that may find themselves still saying the R word...please think about how it may affect someone living with Down Syndrome or other developmental disabilities. When you say something is "retarded", you are using a word that is hurtful to Colin and all of his friends. PLEASE, remind your friends and family members why they shouldn't use that word either...

This girl is spreading awareness for her brother, just as I am now spreading awareness against that word for Colin...




For more information, or take the pledge, please visit http://www.r-word.org/ for more information.

Spread the word to end the word.

wouldn't it be a better world for all if people would just listen and understand what we are asking. I have lots of friends and family members that have STOPPED using a word that they never understood could hurt so many and I have 1 in particular that refuses to stop......that has every excuse why it doesn't matter.....and another that says it doesn't concern Jonathon.....I have been trying since March 2010.....and i will continue to speak my mind!!!!!!
