After writing my first post, “First Confession“, I was asked why I chose to write about Down Syndrome. Well, I’ve read the original blog of Confessions Of A Down Syndrome Daddy and I was honestly touched by it. I tried to revisit the website after a while and it was expired. I’ll choose not to name the family for privacy reasons and respect.
In order to understand why I chose to write about this subject other than continuing to raise the awareness of it, let me just give a brief background about me. I am from Hawaii and I have a business that offers tree removal services. Being born and raised here in Hawaii set me up with a loving foundation. There is special aura here in Hawaii that spreads love like no other place (as far as I know) – it’s called “Aloha”. I’ve been raised to love one another because as a whole, we are all the same. The way that we treat others, we are treating ourselves. And I guess that’s one of the unconscious reasons why I chose to write this blog, for the love for one another including the Down Syndrome population.
