People do not "suffer" from Down syndrome.

When we do experience suffering, its causes are often systemic. We suffer when we hear "retard" jokes in Hollywood films and coming from the White House, when teachers think our children can't learn, or when they are excluded from social opportunities.

These problems aren't caused by Down syndrome, but by ignorance and prejudice.
