Words do matter — and can hurt

Editor, OBSERVER:

March is spread the word to end the word month. That word in particular is retard or retarded.

When some the community call a disabled person that name and make fun of them, this allows for feelings to be hurt.

The new words are: respect; be kind to others; be helpful to others; kindness matters; disabled lives matter.
