Today’s the Day!

Spread the Word to End the Word Day!  March 3, 2010.

It is being referred to as “the r word.”  It includes the two words “retard” and “retarded.”  The campaign is asking people to take the pledge to drop the words from their vocabulary.

It goes right along with my rant from a couple of days ago and the hurt those words cause.

For Chloe.  For someone you love who has an intellectual disability.  For respect of the disabled population.  Consider taking the pledge.  Consider dropping the words from your vocabulary.

Please see the following websites promoting Spread the Word to End the Word Day today.
