I know I am due to post about a ton of updates and reviews, but I have something I wanna talk about, and that's one of my favorite shows, Glee. I love Lea Michelle, I love musical theater, and I love Becky, the Cheerio that has become Sue Sylvester's number two gal.
I also love that the show is talking about something real and something that I am very passionate about. Becky has down syndrome. This week's episode brought to the surface that people with disabilities are still people, with their own thoughts and feelings. I am going to school right now to be a Special Education teacher, and I wish that more people understood that about these kids. They laugh, love, and feel. And they hurt. There is a movement called Spread the Word to End the Word. Check it out, google it, friend it on Facebook, and realize that words hurt. Please.
