The "r" word really bothers me and although I haven't called anyone out yet who uses it, I silently cringe every time I hear or read it. I so fear that this is the word that my son will be bullied with and marginalized, later on in life and it breaks my heart to hear my friends use it as casual language. :-( Ideas, Heart, Rword, Quotes, Special Education, R Word, Syndrome Awareness

stop the "R" word. I have always hated when people say the "R" word. I have an aunt who is physically and mentally handicap and this term is offensive. I know people use the word like a joke but its not a joke its hurtful.
So true and some just don't get why it bugs me no matter how you meant it...just stop using that word.
Spread the word to end the word!! Instead of using the r word to tear people down why not use a different r word to build people up? Use words like regal, resilient, or respect to give people confidence in themselves!!:)
stop the "R" word. This word is also hurtful to people with physical disabilities also! SO TRUE!!

Nothing to really do with PJO, but I want to ask my fellow camp mates to refrain from using the 'R' word on our boards. I have seen it a few times, and understand that no one means any offense by it, but it can still be hurtful to other campers and pinners. This word is not only offensive, but also politically and medically inaccurate. I have dedicated a large part of my life to working with people who have special needs and disabilities, and it is what I am working towards in my future career, so I have seen the effect it can have on people. I don't want anyone to feel offended or have to leave our board. So please, Spread the word, to end the 'R' word. Thanks, Katie

Quotes about Home: Definition for hiraeth (n.) a homesickness for a home to which you can not return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearing, the grief for lost places in your past. #font #inspirational
Hiraeth, is a Welsh word that literally translates into English as 'longing', though in Welsh the concept of yearning for a place removed in space or time is far more powerful and evocative than in English.
Hiraeth - a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearnin, the grief for the lost places of your past
Hiraeth: a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past. (Welsh word with no direct English translation.)
"the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past" Hiraeth /hɪəraɪ̯θ/ is a Welsh word that has no direct English translation. The University of Wales, Lampeter attempts to define it as homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past. Hiraeth bears considerable similarities with the Portuguese concept of saudade (a key theme in Fado music), Galician morriña and Romanian dor.
hiraeth for my childhood home. A place I released and can never get back to.
hiraeth for my childhood home, my favourite place in the entire world <3
Hiraeth (Welsh) Such a beautiful word.

When all else fails, a little retail therapy at my favorite store always helps! by jenifer. i could not agree more! during my first years in philly- i did target therapy all of the time.
the keep calms are getting old, but I love this one! Target (especially sans children) is my happy place.
Normally these "keep calm" phrases annoy me, but this one actually applies to my life because Target is my go-to store, lol. :)
Mhmm. don't normally go for these keep calm things....but Target is one of my absolute favorite places:)
Keep calm and go to Target, my favorite store, and remember to get the kids popcorn :)
I'm actually way over this Keep Calm thing, but this one made me laugh.

The R-word. I'm guilty of having used it for a lot of years, until someone called me out on it and I'm so glad they did. Now it sounds like nails on a chalkboard every time I see or hear it ESPECIALLY when I see people with children using this word. Be an adult and set an example. STOP USING THE "R" WORD.

Members learn how to better make decisions and choices in life in order to be more independent. They also learn about rights and responsibilities. Programs like these should be more common everywhere to help PWD self advocate

Some people have disabilities, and while mental retardation is not a bad word, when used to describe someone or something you think is bad or stupid it becomes a hurtful word. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities are not bad. Their condition is not bad. The prejudice and discrimination to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is BAD…and WRONG! Please stop using the word ‘retard’. It hurts individuals and families of those with disabilities. -therword.org

They always get a picture of the girlfriend or wife of the soldier, instead of a family member. I love this picture. It shows how much a father is proud of his son and it truly melts my heart. <3This is not my son and my husband but the point gets across
These "coming home" or "going" war photos tear at my heart. A father so full of emotion as Dad knows just how his son feels as Dad was probably a Viet Nam military man himself. :-)
Pictures on here always show soldiers and their girlfriends but this is the first time I’ve seen a father and son, and it’s such an amazing picture.

These coming home from the war photos tear at my heart. To all of our military, past, present and future, we thank you so much for your service. This photo is so poignant because it reminds me of a father greeting his son knowing full well what he has been through because he also went to war, most likely in Vietnam. -kjk

Friends... Even though we are 2500 miles apart, my best friends are always there for me. We can pick up the phone or see each other after a long time and it's like we never were apart. For those friends, I am so thankful!
In an ideal situation life would allow us to be together more often. But so thankful for my friends that fall into the above category!
Me and my best friend used to pride ourselves on this all the time! I miss him and love him more than anything!!
It still makes me feel warm thinking about Tyne coming over ten minutes after I moved home to the mitten from Panama.
Friends like this are rare. I love it when I don't see a certain friend for a year and we can pick up right where we left off!
this has to be a photo of me and Sandra Stafford. We can always pick up just where we left off and never take a breath. Love it!
You know it's a great friendship when you don't talk for several months and pick up just where you left off with no awkwardness.

The songs that I listen to are mostly not so popular songs we would listen to in 2014. So that's why my friends are really special...
I'm not sure I have a song anymore, or if anyone else knows it, but it's a nice thought.

I have so thought about you so much and this but here we go and I hope it doesn't push you even further away if that is possible. Just so I'm clear and just in case you ever do look again... The caption is Not for you you will always be in my heart! I know I went away I was feeling abandoned as a friend in my heart as you couldn't even say goodbye when I was so so so excited for your new adventure. Please don't ask or tell, not that I really expected you to anyway, but you went away first and its not the first time, not me. You so make me question the def of friendship with some but not all of your actions towards me and I wonder and don't believe if it is the same with other friends, I believe not and so wonder why. I know a friend will be there even if it is 20 yrs before the next word and I am here always have been nothing has separated you from my heart not even time trust me I went 28 before. Please don't disrespect my friendship even if you do not respect my feelings. I have tried to respect you and I so do I hope you see that, I just ask if you can't respect my feelings, please respect me as your friend. You know my heart, and what your friendship has meant to me, I so hope and pray! Just in case you wonder I am good other than it is getting super busy at work, hope you are good too, if you do see, i hope it was a good time for you I so really do and wish I could hear. take care I haven't expected anything from you and certainly don't now, except a true friendship from your heart. no matter what I have said in the past, it is all true and forever will be to my heart friendship or not. I am really trying to change my expectations I really am and it is hard. I am here for you I really am for anything with all my heart! In the event we speak again if I seem short to you please understand I am not trying to be mean I am trying to understand I want to talk to you and I have asked for understanding and patience from above and it will take patience and time for me. I miss my friend and I hope you will still be my friend even if time means years, I pray not, you are and will forever not be in my heart but the very beat of my heart every day that I live! You always have been and you will forever be friend or not!
