Both Sides Of The R-Word

Last wednesday was Spread The Word To End The Word day where we urged our community around us to stop using the r-word in a derogatory fashion because of its harmful effects on others. This is my 2nd year that I've done a PSA to help spread awareness for this campaign. I wanted to get involved with this effort because I've been on both ends of the word. When I was younger I used to be call the r-word repeatedly in our special ed classes and than when I got older I would joke around with my friends using the word. It wasn't until this campaign came around I really began to understand how harmful this word really was to people. 

I urge you all to go look at www.r-word.org for more information on this campaign. Special Olympics and Best Buddies partner here as hosts of this event and have been doing a fantastic job ever since 2009. Without further ado here are my PSA's!

The organization take action as constant companions to children with autism to help them develop social interactions and associations, teach life skills, and boost awareness in activities and reduce stress within the family.
