World Down syndrome Day

Today is World Down syndrome Awareness Day. A day to spread the word to the world that Down syndrome, or Trisomy 21, is not a disease, it's not an affliction that people "suffer" from, it's not something to be feared. In our history we as a society have never liked embracing differences. From the color of people's hair or skin, to which hand they use, we always have used labels to lump people into groups. Today is a day to spread the joy and unconditional love that comes with that extra chromosome.

Does it look like they are suffering?

The love between sisters

Happy World Down syndrome Day!!
