Spread the Word to End the Word

Today we join with the Down Syndrome community to Spread the Word to End the Word. You can join us too, by clicking here!
 I encourage you to support our family by removing the R-Word from your vocabulary. You can take it a step further and join us in our advocacy efforts, as we attempt to educate friends, co-workers and acquaintances when we hear them use the word. There is no need to be offensive- a simple "I'd appreciate if you chose a less offensive adjective like absurd" is all it takes to help raise awareness.
Do it for Porter! Do it for his big sister Penny! Do it for us!
Thank you!
 I love this "Buy a Dictionary Poster" by Alison Rowan:
There are so many better words to describe what you're feeling! Go ahead and use a synonym :) Spread the love. Spread the word!
