Pledge and be heard! – is the motto of the amazingly well liked campaign; Spread the word to end the word.
The campaign is about the rights of mentally retarded people, and how we don’t think about it when we throw the word “retarded” around.
I mean, who hasen’t heard a person (mostly silly teenagers) say “that’s retarded!”, or “you’re retarded!”, even though the person is perfectly normal. How would a retarded person, or his/hers relatives feel in this situation?
I have a school teacher, who has opened my eyes for words and their true meanings.
SO go pledge and be heard!
