Recently, Dustin Daughtry was eating lunch with co-workers when one of them started articulate about a Halloween celebration he’d attended. He said, “My hermit came to a celebration and had a best costume. He went as a RETARD! Oh man, it was hilarious!”
Dustin was taken aback. His daughter, Raegan, has Down syndrome, and he couldn’t trust that he was conference adults use a word “retard.” Did they not know that a word is deliberate hatred speech?
Rather than stay silent, Dustin done a move. He pulled adult a print of Raegan on his phone and placed it on a table. Then, he repelled a group with a commercial of his own.
“This is my small girl, Raegan…She has Down syndrome,” Dustin announced. “I’m only wondering, is she what a retard looks like, to you?”
Of course, a male attempted to backpedal and contend that wasn’t what he meant, though it was too late. No doubt, everybody who was during that lunch list will cruise twice before regulating that hurtful word again.
The subsequent day, Dustin’s wife, Shannon, common what had happened on Facebook. She wrote, “There are so many difference in a compendium that we can use in place of a ‘R’ word. Please, for Raegan’s sake, cruise regulating a opposite one.”
