3.21 Word Down Syndrome Day









3-21 or 21-3

March 21st

3 of the 21st chromosome

World Down Syndrome Day




Over 1 in 700 live births is a child born with Down syndrome.
Down syndrome occurs in all races.
It does not descriminate.
It is not a disease.
Our children do not "suffer" from Down syndrome.
They are not "afflicted" with Down syndrome.
Our children are just that. . .children first.

People with Ds live full, productive lives and are contributing members to society who are looking for inclusion.  Will you "let us in?"

Witness Texas history in the making! On Monday the Texas legislature will introduce a resolution in both the House of Representatives and the Senate honoring people with Down syndrome in the great state of Texas by proclaiming March 21 World Down Syndrome Day. --Gerard Jimenez DSACT Digest


Celebrate today! Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day!
