I met this boy who works at Albertsons. Hes always smiling, very helpful, hard working, very kind and yes he has Down syndrome. Here we all have the knowledge on how to be happy & kind to one another yet were not.

God placed these special children in our paths for a reason and we can learn from them. God Bless all these childern.

P.S. I know I’ll hear " why did God make them that way in the beginning"? Well if know a little about God then you know he did not make them that way, he allowed these special children to be born for his purpose NOT ours

It's obvious that the world would be a better place if Vince took his own advice. What a shame - in a world with so much information, how can someone be so stupid? Go back to jail where you might be useful, Vince!

Good article. The young lady that was written about was truly a sweetheart. It's amazing what these kids CAN DO. The more you learn, the more you realize how normal people with Down syndrome really are.
