World Down Syndrome Day 2020

Bradley Mattes   |   March 20, 2020

Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day, which is appropriate because France may be making history by electing its first public official with Down syndrome.  Eleonore Laloux is 34 years old, an accomplished author, is running for city council in Arras, France, and happens to have Down syndrome.  Her priority if elected is to advance fairness in society.  Eleonore’s book, Down Syndrome, So What? encourages people to reject the stigmatism against individuals with the condition.  They’re much more capable than many give them credit for, and this young woman is on the cusp of proving it once again.  God has a plan for every life conceived, and chances are good it’s different from yours, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less important to the Creator.
