Watched this YouTube video yesterday and was so moved by it.  I cringe whenever I hear this word.  I am always amazed by how often this word is used by adults, teenagers, parents, parents of special needs children (something I don't understand), teachers, therapists, attorneys, people with college degrees and by people without.  It's as common as "OMG," a word tossed out casually in conversation.  And it has to stop.    

This young woman's message to the world is simple, poignant and powerful.  If this doesn't change a person's mindset, then I don't know what will.
