National Down Syndrome Day

March 21st is the 8th annual observance of National Down Syndrome Day. 3/21 is not an obscure setting of the date of this observance. A person with Down Syndrome has a third occurrence of chromosome 21 (thus 3/21). Some of friends talk about how that extra chromosome “rocks”.  I am inclined to agree.
This year, the National Down Syndrome Congress’s tag line is “We’re More Alike Than Different”.  Having a “heart” reason to really learn as much as I can about this condition (it is NOT a disease), I find that to be true.  
The best explanation I have seen of this in this video that was done by the Down Syndrome of Greater Kansas City. Be enlightened and encouraged.
