END the r-word. Today!

I HATE the word retard!  No matter HOW you use it!  Even when it is used it to describe someone jokingly – it HURTS. 

Please don’t use it flippantly.

Please don’t use it to describe MY granddaughter.  Yes, she has Down syndrome, but she has just as much to a fulfilling life as you and I do! 

NO, she does NOT suffer!  Not at all! 

This video is as cute as can be; take a look and promise you won’t use the R-word, or stand by as others around you do.

Thank you!  This means a lot to me!  It IS a big deal!

Piper’s nana, Robbie Marie


  1. Very nice thank you for sharing such an important video with all of those who follow your blog - Candy

    1. What a sweet, sweet video. Thanks Robbie.

  2. i agree wholeheartedly. my oldest daughter is profoundly hearing impaired. i also hate it when i hear people ask (in a derogatory manner): "what's wrong with you? are you deaf?" being close to a situation like that makes you look at things in a whole new light, doesn't it?


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment... I just hearing from you!
