“My name is not Mongolia, I have a name like all children” – different

“My name is not Mongolia, I have a name like all children”

The following post, which we read on the “Empathy” page, does not need prefaces and introductions. The words are so powerful that they disarm… If you want, take a few seconds to read it:

“My name is not Mongolia, I have a name like all children”

“My name is not Mongolia, I have a name like all people.

My medical condition is called Down Syndrome.

The cause of my disease is due to chromosomal abnormalities… this abnormality then reproduces in a cell of my body, you know it’s not my fault.

I have a small mouth with a large protruding tongue and in general, my physical and cognitive development is delayed, the shape of my eyes are strongly the characteristics of the Mongolian race…

The term “Mongolism” bothers me and is inadmissible and scientifically unacceptable.

But nevertheless I love and I comment and I understand and I learn and I feel, let us talk but as simply as possible, and I do not want you to feel sorry for me…

I am sweet like you, if you love me a little I will love you very much.
