Rita Rita Rita
My niece Rita was born with Down's syndrome. Rita may not be a doctor, but she has become an incredibly productive woman despite her handicap.
Rita works at the Coffee Shed in Toronto, which was created by Common Ground, an organization that seeks to employ developmentally delayed adults in environments that are owned by the adults who work there. She wakes up every morning with an incredible desire to go to work and a big smile that makes you love her unconditionally. The promotional video above is entitled "Empowerment." It speaks for itself. If you are so inclined, please donate to by clicking this link... Common Ground.
