3. my experiences “To see a world through eyes that doesn’t judge. To love with hearts that do not discriminate. To look at people for who they are and accept them for simply that. This is how children and adults with Down syndrome see the world. They love. They feel. Unconditionally. They are role models and all the inspiration everyone needs.”
-Nancy Giani -"American Idols"
