March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD.) “It is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. Down Syndrome International (DSi) encourages friends all over the world to raise awareness of what Down Syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down Syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.” Watch this link – WE ARE MORE ALIKE THAN DIFFERENT
Michael Jack is my nephew. He loves me (not my dog) and Villanova basketball. Mrs. Traynor has a beautiful nephew too! John John loves to dance and his Aunt Colleen!
To help spread awareness wear#LotsOfSocks! But not just any socks…
…wear official #LotsOfSocks socks, other brightly colored socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock… even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. Wear something people will ask you about so that you can tell them all about WDSD and not to use the R word.
And one last video to warm your heart!
