Lest We Forget: Tonight we observe Earth Hour! Turning off all non-essential lights from 8:30pm-9:30pm local time, to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.

Without meaningful action, we may well see Margaret Atwood's book, Year Of the Flood, moved from the "future fiction" section to the "non-fiction" section. [But at least Grumpy Cat will be vindicated.]

Happy Earth Hour 2013! 

“Without the light, no chance; without the dark, no dance.” 
― Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood

Hey, it's World Down Syndrome Day! 

At Different Is Cool, our dream is to eradicate prejudice by increasing compassion for others, so we would like to mark this day by discussing the use of the "r" word, in relation to people with special needs.

You may remember during last year's U.S. Presidential race that U.S. conservative political commentator Ann Coulter sent out a tweet using the r word to describe Barack Obama.

That tweet created an enormous backlash, but there was no greater response than the open letter from Special Olympian John Franklin, asking her why she used it. [read below].

As John says: "..Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor...No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much."
