World Down Syndrome Day - 3/21

Well, yesterday (3/21/11) was World Down Syndrome Day. I was going to put a blog post up yesterday, but didn't get to it.

So, today will have to do. World Down Syndrome Day is to raise awareness & promote acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome.

You may ask why 3/21 for WDSD? Well, it's pretty easy. People with Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, instead of the usual 2.

Here are a couple photo montages put together for WDSD.

The first is one by the Down's Heart Group in the UK & the second one is put together by the International Down Syndrome Coalition For Life.
