My friend Luke is the bravest person I know. He is the nicest kid I’ve ever met and despite his disability, he is an active member of our school. Luke has Down syndrome but that does not stop him from doing everything anyone else does and he has the best attitude out of anyone. Jackson G. #OneBraveThing
3/21 = Trisomy 21 = Down Syndrome. Today is WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY; take the opportunity to educate yourself and others. For instance: they are not the stereotypically "always happy". It's "Down Syndrome", not "Down's Syndrome". You can't "catch" Down Syndrome and you can't predict whether a child with Down Syndrome will/won't be "high functioning" - one person doesn't "have it more" than another. EDUCATE and ACCEPT. <3
