I've known several people with Down Syndrome. Very loving. Very genuine. Usually a great sense of humor.

this was shown at one of our company meetings several years ago. Not a dry eye in the room.

Our local Meijer store has had a man with Down Syndromes working there for years; he is so nice! He always says "hello" when he sees me. One day last summer, I was in there shopping with my mom; I got done before she did, and since I was feeling tired, I went out to the car to wait for her. He noticed me sitting in the car while he was outside collecting shopping carts (my mom drove that day) when I was resting a bit by laying my head back on the seat and closing my eyes; he came over and asked if I was ok, he was concerned that I might not be feeling well. I thought that was so sweet of him!

They make me smile, their love for others and their cuteness makes me love them. I think they are some of the most beautiful people. They love much and try so hard. I see beauty when I see one. I actually smile whenever I see a person with Downs. I watched a documentary on a downs couple last night who got married and I loved it. In my earlier days I used to have to ride the bus to work and there were many kids with down syndrome on the city bus that took them to their school on the route. I never feared a thing, and there was always something to smile about. They are a gift :)
