Yesterday I received an e-mail from our local Down Syndrome association. It asked us to watch a program that was aired last night on ABC. I've watched this show before and it usually has me stunned and fuming. The show last night had me fuming and also left me feeling very sad. The program is called, What would you do?

This made Gavin very sad!
It made his Momma very sad as well!
I realize that this type of thing happens, but it's discouraging to see it acted out. Sometimes I just can't understand why people are so cruel! This world is so full of hatred and it really depresses me!
I know that I would have said something to a person that was treating anyone, Down syndrome or not, this way! I hope that I would be eloquent in my response to them, but I have a feeling that my anger would get the best of me.
Do me and Gavin a favor. If you ever see something like this happen.....please speak up and let this person know that it's NOT OK to treat people like this! Thank you!
This would make Gavin and I very happy!
