Make A Pledge for Grace, Bella & Friends!
Today is the day that thousands of people are pledging to end their use of the "R" word. What is the "R" word? It is "retard" or "retarded".
If I were given a $1 for every time I have overheard someone saying "That's so retarded" or "I'm such a retard!", I would be a very rich woman!
Yes, my daughters' both have mental retardation--I get that. But what I don't get is how people use their diagnosis in a defamatory manner. It truly hearts a Mama's heart. :(
So, would you pledge to stop saying this today? People from my neice Kassie to Joe Jonas are doing it....you can too! Just click on the link to make a formal pledge or just pledge it to yourself.
Words hurt....Let's SPREAD THE WORD TO END THE WORD today!
