Dear Ann Coulter,
I’ve long thought that even though we, as Americans, are politically divided, that underneath it all, we are all still human beings. Human beings that want what is best for this country. Human beings that care for others. Well, that thought ended last night! I can’t even begin to put into words my utter disappointment when you took to Twitter and called the president a “retard”. Really?
When you use that word, you hurt thousands of individuals with disabilities. One of those individuals is my sweet daughter. We were told over 10 years ago that she had “mental retardation”. These past 10 years she has taught us more than we could ever teach her. She has taught us patience, joy, encouragement, forgiveness, hope, acceptance, and unconditional love.
Ann, our daughter is NOT a joke! She is more than you could ever aspire to be! Open your eyes and your heart. And for the love of all that’s holy, please think BEFORE you open your mouth or pull out your smart phone. Think of our sweet girl and know that you hurt her, and all those like her, with your insensitive and hateful words!
Ann, meet Skylar! You could learn a LOT from her!
