World Down Syndrome Day


World Down Syndrome Day

Today is World Down Syndrome Day.  It’s always celebrated on March 21st because the condition is caused by and extra, or third twenty-first chromosome.  It’s a day we celebrate all those who have the condition.  We applaud them as family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and fellow church members or students.  It’s a day we work to demolish negative myths and false or outdated scientific and medical notions about people with Down syndrome.  We’re in a time of enlightenment, a time when we know that people with this condition are productive and welcome members of society.  God has a plan for every person regardless of the challenges that lie ahead, even if we can’t see what that plan is.  So, join our celebration of World Down Syndrome Day!
