I'll never forget the time I spent with a young Down Syndrom woman and her nomadic family in Mongolia. She pulled her load as much as anyone else, but constantly cheerful, always happily busy with household chores. To hell with modern civilization if it can't be made to fit them. https://twitter.com/jvanmaren/status/1293520600355545096
When Mrs. Wrath was last pregnant her doctors wanted her to take a CVS test to make sure the baby didn't have Down Syndrome. I will never forget the horror in her face when she realized what they were asking her to contemplate. We never sat foot in that clinic again.
