Children can be hurtful to each other., parents need to nip it and educate them as well as demonstrate the true meaning of empathy.
As a volunteer for Special Olympics it makes me smile to see this. I have a shirt I wear once a week that says "spread the word to end the word." I was inspired to be a coach at the age of 9.
Betty, a.k.a. Ella's mom
My Ella was born with Downs and opened my and my children's eyes to how often we used the word retard randomly.

On February 24, 2015, VARC, Inc., located in Wisconsin, invited area school districts to discuss living a message of respect toward people of all ability levels.
Dan's proud mom
Parent teacher conferences today and the teacher shared a story that happened this afternoon. A classmate of my 6th grader, Daniel, called our daughter, Gemma, who has Down syndrome, the horrible, hurtful word.
When I was in high school, I worked as a student teacher in a special education classroom. That right there makes it personal to me.
I did a persuasive speech on why people should stop using the R word. I myself have a disability and feel that I get lower grades and I'm terrified that one day someone will figure that out and use the word on me.
I agree with all the writers here. I want a world that is fair and kind.. I have come to no longer expect all in the world to be kind and caring about people and their feelings.
Age 10 or so. Family went to visit a Nun our Mom knew who worked at a residence for the challenged. We were taken on a tour of the facility.
I became close friends with someone with ADHD my first year in college. He always hated the R-word. When he was little he was called it and bullied because kids thought he had an intellectual disability.
My sister was born with special needs and she is hurt when people use the r word.
Knowing that when they grow older they'll be made fun of breaks my heart. It is because of them I realized how many people I may be hurting by using the r-word.
Amy M Braun-Gross
I was in school when these two people told me that I mattered and that I am loved today and everyday. Those two people were nice to me when I got bullied.
Mara Nicole Grant
Spencer James Grant; 4 years of age born 3/20/09, he's the highlight of my day every single day. He has the biggest smile ever and is always saying hi or waving hi to someone.
This September 28 we will observe the fourth annual Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day to celebrate her incredible contribution to the lives of people just like me. As a young person growing up, I knew I was “different” from other children.
Whenever I hear the r word. I feel upset because those kids are no different then anyone else.

Now I have accomplished all. I just have to make it to the world games. It's almost like chocolate, you taste it.
I am 13 and I went to Special Olympics track and field for the first time this year and it was one of the most best times I've ever had.
Christina M. Harris
Each year certified officials volunteer their knowledge of the game to make sure Special Olympics athletes compete under conditions similar to WIAA member schools. In return, the athletes reward officials with compliments, handshakes, high-fives, smiles, and thank you’s.
We need to treat people with respect -- not treat them like they are nothing!
GS Troop 4348 has chosen the "Spread the Word To End the Word" campaign for their 'Take Action' service project. They worked hard for several months putting together an all-school event at their elementary school, asking all students/staff to take the pledge to stop derogatory use of the R-word.
Thanks to Special Olympics, I have been many places and met many interesting people and I’ve had some incredible opportunities, but, I have much more to do in this world and much more to accomplish.
