Soeren Palumbo Fremd HS Speech 2/28/07

Why the word retard and retarded is not only "politically incorrect" but why its just wrong to use. Once again, I remind you- those in my life- to tell your friends, your family, and especially your children as they learn from you, and your words. Tell them why the words "retard" and "retarded" hurt. And I praise Soeren for his bravery and love for his sister.

I also applaud this young man.....I actually sent the the video clip and transcript to all of the teachers at my daughter's high school after it came out.....with the hopes that at least one of them might actually show it in school at some point and time.
