What Today Means

3-2-11 Spread the Word to End the Word.

If you have a child with special needs or you know someone with special needs you know that person is so much more then a word. But when that word is used in derogatory terms and spewed with out any thought or mindfulness it hurts those who have special needs and those who love someone with special needs. I don't care if you are referring to yourself or referring to "something", there is no need for the word to be used. Change the conversation folks, it isn't that hard to rise above, be better, be accepting and be respectful. There are occasions where that word will get you a sure sucker punch to the face, believe me it happens. Mr. Asa has had the impact on friends of friends and there are a few witnesses to back the story of the one sorry fellow who said the wrong word in the wrong house at the wrong time.... And this was a chick laying one on a not so wise guy! Like I said it was a friend of a friend, but they had met Asa and were spellbound by his magic, forever at his service... The point was made very clear and I will be forever grateful...

Spread It! Or Else!

My name is Jackie and I am a mother, wife, friend, sister, daughter, cousin to many, and a dreamer of sorts. I dream of many things and one is a life full of acceptance, achievement and success for my Super Hero son Asa. He's got extra good stuff that comes with a little thing called Down syndrome. We live in the beautiful state of New Hampshire with our 2 Bulldogs; Rosie, Frankie and 36 chickens.
