In honour of World Down Syndrome Day yesterday, this was posted on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/RuthAnneforOakville/) with overwhelming response. Please watch and let's work together to get rid of the "R-Word"!
Ruth Anne McAuley:
Today is World Down Syndrome Day.
My daughter, Mairi, was frustrated with students in her Grade 9 class who continually used the "R" word to tease each other.
So she made a short video, and after showing it to them said,
“When you use the R word, you not only hurt the young man in this video, you hurt me...because this is my big brother.”
Here’s to my son Matt rockin’ that 21st chromosome!!
