Crazy Socks, Incredible People!

Community celebrates World Down Syndrome Day

 

by Johanna Vogt - March 25, 2019

March 21st was World Down Syndrome Awareness Day. The twenty-first day on the third month signifies the triplication (trisomy) of the twenty-first chromosome which causes Down syndrome. Businesses, schools, and individuals from all over the globe unite to celebrate and spread awareness about the incredible individuals who are making a significant impact in the world, while also having Down syndrome. In support, many individuals wore crazy socks on World Down Syndrome Awareness Day in hopes they would be asked why! This would then give them a platform to speak about the abilities and accomplishments of people who have Down syndrome.

Dr. Lisa Feil, from Inner Compass, reminds everyone to treat people with Down syndrome with KINDNESS and realize they’re just like any other person. They have hopes, dreams, likes, and dislikes. People with Down syndrome are doing things that society never deemed possible. They’re in the workforce, driving vehicles, going to college, and doing a multitude of other things.

The Home Page staff would like to encourage our viewers to continue spreading awareness about how essential people with Down syndrome are to our lives and community. Remember to be inclusive and to love one another deeply from the heart.

“Being human means learning to see the common humanity in us all.” -George Takei
