He was 6 when he died. He had developmental delays but he taught such great things. His love was one of an angel, he didn't know hate. All the pokes and sticks by nurses, yet they got big smiles. Jordan has a big brother,Nathan. He's a great kid. He loves his brother. But one day walking home from school Nate was followed by a group of boys. Those boys were yelling. "You're a Retard, because your brothers a Retard." And they were screaming it at Nate over and over again. Until I stepped out to say. "Who told you his brother was a retard?" Because Jordan had not come home from the hospital since the day he was born. He was 3 at this time. "Our parents told us." Answered one of the boys. I told them "Go back & tell your parents God gave me an angel on earth, If they have the nerve to call an Angel a Retard come down here and do it!" After that day the R word has never been allowed in my home. I was so happy when this Pledge was started. Thank you.
