At times like these, the world calls for people to be included and for everyone, rather than almost everyone to be included. This means all people, regardless of race, gender, age, disability and so forth. As founder of KEEN, my journey began as a young child as my best friends sister, Cathy had a severe form of Down syndrome, was bullied, raped and made fun of all through high school. I remember her knocking on my sisters window so she would come out to play which she did. It was heart wrenching to watch. We all loved Cathy. This marked my beginning into into the world of disabilities and segregation in the 60’s where kids were put in a classroom all their own. I swore to change the world. I was bullied as a teenager and felt left out so knew what it was like to be excluded. It doesn’t feel good to be left out, not included, discriminated against or hurt. We all want to be loved no matter what or who we are.
