R-Word.org site, "It is time we Spread the Word to End the Word (tm) and build awareness for society to stop and think about its' use of the R-word. That R-word is something hurtful and painful -- "retard" or "retarded." Most people don't think of this word as hate speech, but that's exactly what it feels like to millions of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and friends.The R-word is just as cruel and offensive as any other slur. Visit www.r-word.org to make your pledge today."
While it only takes a few minutes to pledge, it takes a lifetime to truly practice your pledge, I hope you choose to do both!
