There is a lot of press lately about some work being done at the University Of Massachusetts Medical School, and if you believe what they think they’ve found, a cure for Down syndrome, please keep reading:
According to Merriam-Webster the definition of cure (noun) is:
• Recovery or relief from a disease
• Something (as a drug or treatment) of a disease
• A course or period of treatment
• A complete or permanent solution or remedy
As a verb:
• to prepare or alter especially by chemical or physical processing for keeping or use
I have news for you so called ‘researchers’ at the University of Massachusetts or any other research facility in the world . . . Down syndrome does NOT need a cure; my sons do not have a disease; example:
• The article cites intolerance as one of the most dangerous of society’s diseases.
An example of Intolerance:
Perhaps the greater challenge or responsibility lies in ‘understanding’, example:
• a relationship based on mutual understanding
Bingo, I think I’ve hit the nail squarely on the head; in order for ‘researchers’ to find a ‘cure’ they must first understand what they are attempting to cure. Next they must be morally responsible in their definition or perception of ‘Disease’; does the condition cause danger to society or can you catch it from being in contact with it?
Next let’s look at intolerance: example:
If you deny farmers from growing tobacco, you can cure a number of associated cancers, and if the queen had balls she’d be king and opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one, which leads me to the very edge of my soap box . . . If you are gifted enough to ‘discover or create’ A Cure for anything, make sure it matters. Remember, Hitler thought he had a ‘cure’ so ask yourself this question, are you tolerant or intolerant? Your answer not only defines you, but reveals you to the world, and when you see the light at the end of your days, how do you want to be remembered? Brilliantly over educated but lacking common sense, or like Spock “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one.”
If you know #kyleandhunter how would your life be different without them having Down syndrome, how would your life be better if they did not have Down syndrome and Autism? Would your life be better or would you have missed something? It doesn’t have to be Kyle and Hunter or Kyle or Hunter, if you are reading this, and someone with Down syndrome or Autism or Both has touched your life in a way you never imagined, stop for a moment and imagine your life without them . . . reach out to those that believe they are creating a better world in attempting to eliminate Down syndrome and let them know that they are wasting their brilliance and at some point they will answer this question to a higher power. We are created by our Creator, in his image and a research group is correcting a mistake?
If this group of highly educated time and money wasters want to ‘cure’ something, here’s a list to start with, feel free to join the conversation and add something you would like cured:
• Serial Killers
• Sexual Predators and Rapists
• Wife Beaters
• Child Abusers and Shaken Baby syndrome.
• Those that harm others that cannot defend themselves.
Perhaps these groups of researchers need a cure for themselves: could they have Psychophrenia?
Psychophrenia is a chronic brain disorder that affect and interferes with the perception of an individual or a person by altering the way a person acts, changing the ways he views his outside surrounding as well as altering his or her thoughts. In a way tampering with the individuals perception of reality and almost a significant loss of contact with reality. Therefore one is not able to distinguish between real and unreal situations as can always be depicted in the usual signs and symptoms of schizophrenia.
Let your voice be heard, share this post via Facebook and Twitter; our children deserve better, just like all children, but our children should not and will not be changed in order that drug companies can line their overstuffed pockets.
Live long and prosper !!
