There Are Better Words To Use: End The R-Word

Standard

Folks, why oh why is the r-word still spoken in cavalier conversation? I honestly hear it every single day, used to describe behavior, people, and situations. This word is offensive, ugly and carries a great deal of ignorance and insensitivity to the special needs community.

It’s easy to put this word to rest. Simply think before you speak.

I don’t believe you are a person, who would openly insult, offend or hurt people like my daughter; so I have to believe you just need to be enlightened. Each time you use the r-word, you are condoning the use of a word that defines people like my daughter as being less, broken, damaged, and stupid. I am informing you today. PLEASE hear me; STOP using the r-word!

There are an abundance of adjectives in the English language, there is no need to keep using the r-word as one. Today, make the effort, think before you speak and finally put an end to this word in our vocabulary. If not for me, please do it for her.

    When I see a special child the first thing that comes to my mind is how really blessed she is , she even at that moment being held in the armes of a all loving God.We of the Catholic Faith believe that in order to sin we have to have full knowledge of what we are doing,and be able to give full consent to it.God sends these special angles to parents who can love them.and they are truly blessed.
