I’m a bit late posting this, but last Wednesday was Spread The Word To End The Word Day, encouraging people to stop using the word “retard.” My friend Ellen, author of the special needs parenting blog Love That Max, made this powerful and moving video to help the cause. The video has been watched over 50,000 times on You Tube and even made it to the CNN.com homepage (go Ellen! go Max!). Please take a moment to watch it, and please share it with friends and family (and have a tissue handy). Thanks.
