Today is Down Syndrome awareness day.A day to help raise awareness of Down syndrome in regards to what it is and what it is like to live with Down Syndrome.
Lets do a quick definition on Down syndrome shall we?
Everyone is born with 23 pairs of chromosomes, that form our genes. Sometimes individuals can be short or have an extra chromosome. In Down Syndrome, they have a full or partial extra copy of chromosome in the 21st pair. Down syndrome is not a “condition” or a “disease” but may have an intellectual disability.
That does not mean they can not complete everyday task or have goals like you and I.
So as for my quote of the day:
Don’t let anyone tell you what you cant do. Show them what you can do.
No matter your situation, your links to resources, an extra chromosome, NO ONE can tell you what you are capable of, unless of course, you let them. If you really want to do something, you will find ways to go about doing it.
Energy, consistency and time.
