Spread the Word to End the Word!

Today is the day to pledge!  According to the 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 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!
