Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

I missed a few years

 Several, apparently 4, years ago I participated in a grassroots kind of education, attempting to eliminate the use of the word "retarded".  While that is not something aimed at me I consider it close enough.  I have cognitive problems, lots of them right now.  And there's not a lot of difference between that and "crazy" "mental" "psycho" "I'm SOOOOOOOOO bipolar hehehe" "schizo" etc.   All of these things exist because of brain abnormalities.

So, even though I'm a bit late in the day, please think about this today.  If you want you can follow the link and sign a pledge. I was just there and they have well over 200,000 signatures.

I signed Jen. Thanks for the enlightenment. I try to be sensitive about such things and will increase my self-awareness. Since I was little, I've HATED remarks like "retard."
