Most of my family have disabilities of one kind or other. I worked with a guy who had downs and to me he was a lovely bloke who was an Elvis fan, enjoyed old war movies and was into the big bands such as Glenn Miller. I'm partially deaf in both ears but I love music and put together some tracks for a church disco a while back. Never stereotype people with disabilities. Get to know us and you will meet some wonderful people.

I echo Kalimata's sentiments.

As a father of a Downs child I know 1st hand the qualities they have and in my experience they are more loving, caring & accepting than most normal people I meet.
Years ago I also had a couple working for me, and they are harder, more concientious and generally all round better workers than the majority of teenagers around today.

Despite the challenges that face them, they work hard to achieve their potential which is more than can be said for todays youth. The real "retards" are those who despite having access to the best education, healthcare, opportunities & not having to contend with serious health issues, learning difficulities, visual & hearing problems STILL manage to make nothing of their lives.

To parallel a frequently used quote by Black G.I.'s during the Vietnam war; "No Downs Syndrome person ever called me a retard."

It`s unfortunate that most people will never have any experience interacting with Downs persons.

They may be what some call "retarded", but on the whole they lack almost every negative emotion and personality fault that plague "regular" folk. They are generally happy, optimistic, generous, kind, loving, and always find the beauty and wonder in things that I don`t give a second thought to.

I am better for sharing my life with my Downs friends.

Grace has the special ability of not being able to use "an".

Eye-opening? Not really, unless you actually don't consider disabled people to be people.
