World Down Syndrome Day

Today, 3/21, is World Down Syndrome Day.

It is a day to celebrate the differences and the similarities of those who have an extra 21st chromosome. Like my daughter, Caroline.

And Albert Pujols' daughter, Isabella.

And Carl Erskine's son, Jimmy.

Carl has written a book, The Parallel, about the struggles and triumphs that both Jackie Robinson and his son, Jimmy, have faced.  Lee Lowenfish wrote a nice piece about The Parallel.
