The problem is the way the word Down is used in society these days, It has a bearing effect on how Down Syndrome People are percieved out in public. ie Feeling Down, Down n Out. Down in the dumps etc.. when in actual fact they are Up and happy most of the time. They bring joy to others and are generally loving also of a caring nature. This label given to them is well overdue to be changed.
