Today is World Down Syndrome Day! I wanted to pass along this article from the Today Show. Savannah Guthrie shared the story of her Uncle Pierce, and what he brought to her life:
Pierce reminded me every day what matters in life: goodness, gratitude, enthusiasm, warmth. He lived to a ripe old age with many friends and admirers. This day is close to my heart because he is close to my heart, and always will be. I hope people will take the opportunity to get to know those with Down syndrome who are living, working and like my uncle did, flourishing in their families and communities.
