Precious...

Has anyone else seen the movie Precious? It was hard to watch…I thought I knew the general idea of the movie…I watch Oprah… I thought I was going to be ok…but lets just say I was shocked and sad…I cannot handle rape scenes in a movie anyway but then…I heard the word “Mongo” and I knew and my heart sank…and I could not believe it…Precious has a little girl born with Down Syndrome…and they call her “Mongo” not a name “Mongo”…. I was so moved by the little girl in the movie…and I was so sad…I am not sure why I am still illusion about people…I just hate that people think my child is less then there child…I hate that my child has labels and names that are just mean…

  1. Hi Kimberly,

    Beth over at Hannah's Shenanigans wrote a post about the movie on her blog. I enjoy Beth's insights very much and after reading her post, I am not so sure I can handle watching this movie. Here is her post: http://hannigans.blogspot.com/search/label/mongoloid

    My heart sinks every time an image like this is fed to the public, whether for good or negative intention/awareness...

    Maddie is good enough. She is as equal in this life as any typical child. *hugs*
