Pledge to end the R-word

Pledge to end the R-Word.  Retarded.  It gets thrown around so easily to describe things that are dumb, stupid,  ignorant, .... 
Originally it was to describe people who are different, special, and unique.  People who needed some extra help but also who give so much more.  I pledge to not use the R-word and stop the stigma that surrounds it.  I am so proud of all of the special needs people I am blessed to know and their bravery, courage, and simple wisdom inspires me daily.
