A must read!

Please take a look at this piece. It brought tears to my eyes and was written so eloquently.

FAMILY Like sticks and stones, words can hurt

Retarded by association: When you make fun of my sister, it hurts me

My sister, who has Down syndrome, has a gift for shrugging off your taunts, but I’m not so lucky.

Great article - but so heartbreaking. I honestly cannot believe people raise their kids to talk like that. It about kills me everytime someone utters the R word...
