Someone Spray-Painted “Retards” on Their House and These Two Brothers Were NOT Having It

The Hollis family has two daughters with Down syndrome. One day in April 2011 they awoke to find their house spray painted with the words “Retards” and “Get Outta Town.”


Hollis’ two sons, who do not have a disability, wanted to make a video to speak up for their sisters and support the Spread the Word to End the Word movement which seeks to eliminate the “r” word. We love this sweet video and what these awesome brothers did for their sisters and for everyone with special needs! Let’s share this to keep up the movement to eradicate the “r” word from our lexicon.
