Celebrating the dignity of people with Down syndrome

Read these stories then check your local newscasts and newspapers for more. I promise you’ll find them. Why? Because good stories highlight great people, and anyone who has spent time with these kids knows they are some of the most loving, most joyful, most caring people in our communities. That’s something to celebrate.

The celebration and acknowledgement of these young people is encouraging, especially in sharp contrast to places around the world, where all babies are NOT valued, in every form, as being created in the image of God.

That’s why we hold on so tightly to these simple, but powerful, stories of human dignity that remind us to look for the beauty and value in others, regardless of our differences.
