Spread the Word to End the Word


What is "the word?" Retard, or retarded. It's offensive, derogatory, and unnecessary. I hated the word before Abby, and my feelings have only intensified. This campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word. 

Just don't use it. 

Ever. 

Period.

If you still don't agree, read this and hear from a mom who is pretty darn vocal about her feelings on the r-word.

You know what? The word "retarded" never truly effected me until I had a brother with Down syndrome. But that? That is a story which I haven't got the time to write.... ;)
