March 21 is not only the first day of astronomical spring but also World Down Syndrome Day. It is therefore worth recalling a short film from 2014 starring children and young people with this birth defect syndrome. 

 

The characters in the video assure a woman, who is expecting a child diagnosed with Down Syndrome that her child can live a normal life and be happy. At the same time, they don't hide the fact that it can be really hard sometimes, but like any mom, they can handle it.

A video of a girl with Down Syndrome reciting the poem ‘I have the right’ also surfaced in the media yesterday. 

 

‘I have a right to freedom, 

I can have my own opinion. 

I'm not a child. 

I have a right to be loved. 

 

I have a right to a family, 

I have a right to a reason, 

 

I have a right to freedom,

I have the right’ 

 

The author of the poem is Maja Kowalczyk.
