Down's Syndrome Awareness Week

Today is the start of Down's Syndrome Awareness Week and I think of my wee aunt. We grew up together, she was our pal, she was the boss! She was adored by all of her nephews and nieces, ranging from her own age to almost thirty years younger. My youngest cousin, in her mid-twenties, tells me she still kisses her photo every day. And this beautiful film for World Down's Syndrome Day is stunning in its simple message, Everyone Has the Right to be Happy. I can't watch it without an overflowing of tears. More on the awareness week here.
