Today organizations all over the world are taking time to #spreadthewordtoendtheword to demonstrate that our word choice matters.The r-word is dehumanizing, it is ignorant, and it negatively effects those around you regardless of what you may believe. I encourage you to expand your vocabulary and treat those with special needs with dignity and respect, because they are not defined by their disability. these are some of my favorite people who do not deserve to grow up in a society that uses such degrading language – let’s do more to spread love & kindness today and every day!
Thank you for this reminder, Mackenzie!
