End the R-Word

About a month ago, my dad sent me an email about a website he found where people are pledging to eliminate the use of the r-word. Of course, I immediately took action and submitted my pledge. Today, in my online search to expand my social network in relation to down syndrome, I came across a wonderful post on another blog On a Joyful Journey: Spreading the Word to End the Word. I am particularly deeply moved by the personal message from John C. McGinley (an actor and star on the TV show "Scrubs") and the youtube video of an interview with him. So I'd like to share the video with you.
