Yesterday, Tuesday March 21st, 2017 was World Down Syndrome Day. To show our support and to raise awareness around the issues of marginalization that persons who have down syndrome face around the world, and in particular in Grenada, we participated in the world wide campaign, as declared by the United Nations, of wearing mismatched socks- #LotsofSocks
The intention behind wearing the mismatched socks is to demonstrate that it takes all types to make up our community and that none should be valued less that the other. Everyone has a function and a purpose that make this dynamic and colorful world beautiful . Although our socks may be different they serve the same function-they are to be valued equally and our differences should not take away from that universal truth.
