Down Syndrome Awareness Month – A Time to Fly

When we open our eyes and look around, we see all types. Not long ago, we hid the different and found a backroom to put our challenges in. When we open doors, we become aware. We see. When we see with our eyes, we give room for our hearts to see past the limitations. We’ve all got a job to do. We’ve all got to fly. Addison NY Times Square Photo
