R-word Campaign - What are your thoughts?

This is part of a new campaign being launched by The Special Olympics. I'd love to know your first reactions and thoughts on this campaign.

Growing up I remember everyone using the word "retard". I don't hear it as much now. And, I certainly try never to say it.

I replaced it with "goober" a long time ago! Ha!

it's pretty amazing how quickly people drop "that's so retarded" without even a thought. i can only imagine how sensitive i would be to people saying this offhandedly if my child had special needs.
