Spread the Word

Spread the Word to End the Word is a National Awareness Day to raise the consciousness of society about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word “retard(ed)” and encourage people to pledge to stop using the R-word.
Check it out here: http://www.r-word.org/

I love that this campaign exists. Take a minute to check out the information. Language is powerful and it's up to all of us to stop using hurtful words.

Oh I like this! I was a school teacher, and I had several mentally handicapped children in my classroom. I loved them so much! The word "retarded" has always been a sore subject with me.
