Hi my name is Nicole and I am a swimmer with Special Olympics and I think that people should stop saying the R word in their vocabulary. It hurts the feelings of people with disabilities.
It's hurtful and makes me feel bad. It's disrespectful and can make people do harm. People can be seriously hurt by this word. I feel this campaign has a strong meaning to it. So i want to be a part of this by helping. Spread the word to end the word. X out the old R_word and put the NEW and improved one in: Respect.
