I’m so very proud of this brave mom. I had to share her open letter to a cyberbully. She is the mother of a beautiful baby with down syndrome. Recently, she tweeted an adorable picture of her precious one soaking up the sun with the biggest smile on his face after being sick for a few days. A sick cyber punk attacked her photo by referring to her son as ugly. This an apparent practice of this idiot, seeking out down syndrome hashtags just to drop insults and hatred.
Well, he met his match. This mom gave him the sweetest tongue lashing and she did it with class. Go mom!

I grimace when I read them, but realize there’s little to be done about such stupidity.
