Believe it or not, I forgot to share this with y’all! A couple of weeks ago, I got an unsolicited email from someone at BlogHer.com. For those of you who don’t know, BlogHer is pretty much the preeminant place online for women bloggers. I read stuff over there occasionally, but I was absolutely SHOCKED to get this email. Apparently, they were looking for someone to write an article about Down Syndrome. They were thinking that, with the release of the movie “Precious” and its portrayal of Down Syndrome, they wanted somebody to give a real-life viewpoint for those who might have seen the movie/read the book and be looking for resources about Down Syndrome.
To say I was flabbergasted would be an understatement. I could not believe that someone had recommended me and that they chose me to do it after becoming familiar with my work on my blog. Not that my blog is awful or anything, but it was just so surprising. And that they came to me – just….whoa. Since I had already written quite a bit on this subject, I decided to cobble that stuff together because I didn’t think I could say any of it any better than I already had. And it got posted here. If you’re a regular reader here, you’ve probably read it all before, but if you haven’t, I encourage you to go and read it. It is such an important topic and it’s my quest to get people to understand Down Syndrome and what it really means – not what the media and hearsay would have you believe.
In other news, here are some funnies for today. Apparently, people just don’t understand the Gospel message. Trust me, nowhere in the Bible does it talk about “low prices” or “receiving bacon”. In fact, I really don’t want a Messiah who only died for low prices.
I mean, I LOVE bacon. Seriously LOOOOOVE bacon. But even bacon wouldn’t be tempting enough….Tweet
