I am 51 years old and the youngest of 4. My oldest sister had severe learning disabilities and I listened as kids called her the R word. I hated it.
While shopping with one of my friends, some teenagers were calling each other the r-word; not being aware of my friends handicap. She thought they were talking about her and she began to cry softly to herself.
When I found out today was the official day of the End the R-Word campaign I knew I had to write something for Bret.
I admit that very recently the word Retarded came out of my mouth to describe something. It is difficult to change the way I speak when for so long I used that word so flippantly.
I have been privileged to grow up with my wonderful Great- Uncle Glenn. He is almost seventy-two years old and has a developmental disability. He did not grow up in a world that understood his capabilities.
