Yesterday changed the world. Today could change the world. Tomorrow will change the world.
Take advantage of the present time and make your voice heard.
The inspiration today is from this very post by Huffington Post, and this pledge by R-word.com.
Have you ever casually used the word "retarded" in reference to a friend's behavior or a reaction to something "absurd" or "crazy"? Or simply putting down a person, a race, a general topic?

So here's a suggestion from our corner of the world to yours. The next time you feel compelled to use the word "retard" "retarded" or "tard" - Just Stop. and Think.
Spread the word and end the word, today. Read the series of posts here.
