Spread the Word to End the Word

On March 6th please help us to Spread the Word to End the Word. What word? The R word. Retard. 

The R-word is intended to be a medical label. Not a word to describe Harper. 

March 6th is the day to promise to stop using the word retard/retarded. I know that many of you have used this word without understanding how hurtful it can be. I'm guilty of it. But now that I understand the true meaning, I've stopped and you can to. Go here to sign the pledge to eliminate the demeaning use of the R-word. 

Harper is a person. Not a medical label. There are so many other words that you can use instead: dumb, crazy, silly, ridiculous. Choose your words wisely and with a loving heart. 

Have you signed yet? Do it for Harper and her buddies. But do it for yourself. You'll feel better once you sign it. And drop me a comment once you sign it so I can be proud of you too! 

You better sign it! Do it for me!
