Spread the Word to End the Word

Today is the annual day of awareness of the use of the R-word.

The Spread the Word to End the Word campaign has a pledge you can sign stating you pledge and support the elimination of the derogatory use of the r-word from everyday speech and promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities. Won’t you join me in such a simple but powerful message?

As an English literature major I believe in the power of words.  I believe our words are important and meaningful, and have the ability to do so much in the world.

When our children are young we start by telling them to use their words.

Let’s all use our words for the better.

    Thank you for sharing this. My younger brother has Down’s syndrome and I have been fighting this word for as long as I remember.
