It's sad to think that some people in this world rather kill than live in a world with such special neshamot. Colden, we need more people like you to speak out against this injustice! Keep it up!! You are awesome!! #Repost @21_connect (@get_repost)
Earlier this week CBS News shared a story about Iceland completely 'eradicating' people with #downsyndrome from their population. According to the article, 100% of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome in Iceland are aborted. 😥😡🙏🏻
Whether or not this alarming statistic is true, the fact remains- expectant parents are being misled and misinformed about what life is like with Down Syndrome.
People with DS are not suffering. It is not a burden. These individuals are true GIFTS to our society.
One of our little friends would like to give you a glimpse 💜 #dsawareness#downsyndromelove#downsyndromecutie#downsyndromerocks#downsyndromeawareness#inclusion#love
I officially have my first Disability Rights Nebraska board meeting under my belt! I am currently watching the sunset listening to Prime Music's "Never Give Up" Playlist 💙 reflecting on how I felt at the beginning of the week! I powered through my dizziness and my mental funk to go out of my comfort zone and start my journey with an organization that I am proud to be a part of! Thank you for your prayers and good vibes! It went really well and I feel so inspired! (travel vlog coming soon) My shirt couldn't say it any better, "Come as you are!" The chair, the vertigo, the smile, the brave heart, the hopeful heart, the grateful heart is what you get with me 💕 #advocacy#education#equality#inclusion#DRNE

Amigo conductor recuerda que los ciclistas no son ningún estorbo, son personas que se trasladan de un lugar a otro mediante este tipo de vehículo y es necesario que haya un respeto mutuo con los conductores vehiculares.
Ayúdalos a llegar a su destino, tomate 30 segundos de tu tiempo para rebasarlo en zona segura y regálale 1.5 mts de Vida entre tu vehículo y el suyo, eso puede significar seguir viviendo o el fin de su tiempo.
Es importante que los ciclistas conozcan sus deberes para circular con seguridad, como también las medidas de seguridad de los conductores para evitar riesgos en la vida de los ciclistas, ya sean deportivos o civiles que acuden sus centros de trabajo.
Apoyamos el fortalecimiento de la #ConcieciaCiudadana#FormamosCiudadanos#Seguridad#Tolerancia#Respeto#Inclusion#Armonia#EducandoAlCiclista#EducandoAlConductor .
I was so inspired by @allie.molina from @arespectmovement. She has created her business with a specific cause in mind! Teaching others how to show respect regardless of our differences. •••
Seeing my son struggle through school because of his learning disability has been difficult to understand. But what I have learned is that it's not him who has to change or adjust but those around him. I had to learn how to focus on his strengths and not his weaknesses. That's where I can see what makes him a genius. •••
To think that we should be graded the same, or viewed the same, or even considered the same is contradicting to the way God has beautifully designed us all. •••
With that, I joyfully support people and businesses that are making a difference! Those that are empowering others. In the end, what they leave behind is not a product or service, but more specifically what they did to change someone's life. •••
Oh, those are my new earrings and bracelet. 😍

Concerned that only about a third of our regular team members have registered for Team Alex so far, Alex made this video. He doesn't want you to miss the t-shirt deadline on 9/1!! "Please join Team Alex! I have to help. I have Down syndrome. Mommy's helping me, too. Please join Buddies Inc, and help Team Alex. Thank you, and good bye." To join Team Alex, check out the link in our bio. Buddies Inc is led by Alex's sister, Addie; you can help her team at the same link. (PS - we are working on a new team captain incentive; the team that recruits the most team members between today and Friday night wins two tickets to DSACO: Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio's gala in February!!!) #columbusohio#asseenincolumbus#fundraising#downsyndrome#614life#buddywalk#inclusionmatters#inclusion
Last night at the #imagen awards #elenaofavalor won best children's programming. Head writer and co-executive producer @olivas_silvia spoke to how much the show means to her and its fans. I feel the same way. Silvia holds a special place in my heart not just because she's a wonderful person and a great talent but also because years ago she wrote the first series I ever sold as an independent producer. She believed in me as much as I believed in her. 💙u girl! #proudmama#inclusion#latina#girlpower#descendants2#descendants#DisneyDescendants#Disney
