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.
