we talk about the r-word everyday in the State of Maine. When people hear about the r-word they R excited everyday it wakes them up. They scream and yell and please let other people know what the r-word is.
My brother has a couple of learning disorders, and he's always getting bullied in school. He tells me he doesn't but everyone knows he does. He's in special ed for school and everyone treats him terribly but he's still a normal person. And it hurts me that he's getting hurt by everyone else.
I help speaking up for us and with people with disabilities who don't know how to speak up for themselves. We help them out in every way

When I went on the track, I was nervous, but I did it,
and that's the true meaning of bravery.

I was the piano teacher for a girl with Down syndrome. Her dad was going to the National Association of Down Syndrome convention. She wanted to play her favorite song at the convention.
My entire life, I have watched my cousin and best friend struggle with autism. She has been bullied, judged, and alienated.
There is this girl in my school who gets bullied at school one day they called her the r-word and I had heard enough so I went over and told the 3 boys to leave her alone and they stopped the next day. We became best friends!!
I may be different in one way, but I am still just like you.
All my life growing up i was picked on. i was called a "retard" A LOT and i was always upset and never wanted to go to school.
My little brother has a disability called Autism. He is one of the most wonderful people i've ever met in my life.
I love this campaign. My town really cares about bullying, especially with the R-word. I especially care about this program because my older brother of 16 has PDD, a part of the Autism Spectrum.
I've said the R-word plenty of times. I try not to, but when I used to I didn't even realize it. I understand how much it puts you down.
He was funny, tough, smart, determined and underneath it all, a tender man. For those of us who knew him, we were lucky to know a man larger than life, filled with personality, a lover of life. We are poorer without him.
