A New Day!!

Please go pledge to end the derogatory use of the word "retarded".

Years ago the medical terminology for classifications for lower cognitive funtioning were Idiot, Moron and Imbecile. These words have been completely incorporated into everyday speech. The same thing is happening with the word Retarded.

Let's work to clean up our speech and our attitudes towards individuals with cognitive disabilities!

Thanks for reminding that was today! I went and posted on it too. Hopefully we will see that new day come yet!
