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!
