Down Syndrome Awareness Day

Third chromosome, 21st pair  (3-21 ~ today's date) : a day to learn about and love our brothers and sisters with Down Syndrome.  No better way to do this than to visit my internet friend, Kelle.

I've heard from people who question our hoping for more children before the loss of fertility, about Down Syndrome fears.  To which I reply, Pschhh!  People are people are blessings are life.  We all have issues.  I guess that's why some folks speak of the "gift of cancer."  And some folks sing "live like you were dying".  It is a mentality that those of us who have made peace with those issues embrace.  We suck the marrow out of life. 

Life is like music ; it must be composed by ear, feeling, and instinct, not by rule.
~G.K. Chesterton
