WATCH & Celebrate with Me: February Marks the 40th Anniversary of the National Down Syndrome Society

 

 

February 8th marked the 40th anniversary of the National Down Syndrome Society, and the NDSS celebrated with a powerful video.

In the video, a doctor lists the supposed limitations of those with Down Syndrome. After each, a person with DS is shown debunking the notion.

The doctor proposes, “There will be a lot of limitations.”

A woman with DS — in a graduation gown — asks, “Are you sure about that?”

Do you have a friend or family member with Down Syndrome? I do.

If you or someone you know has been touched by one of these amazing individuals, please sound off in the Comments section below. And in doing so, celebrate the 40th anniversary for a group of exceptional human beings that places like Iceland abort.

At a time when eugenics intends to eliminate them, and as politicians in New York and Virginia find interest in destroying blossoming life, fight those cultural components of death by embracing and celebrating lives which have just as much right to thrive as anyone ever put on the earth.

Watch the moving video below.

And just as importantly, please visit my coverage of Ashton Kutcher’s Facebook post honoring Special Olympian Frank Stephens (here). You’ll be glad you did.

Let the two videos be your inspiration for the day, the week, the month.
