CoorDown (Italy's national organisation for people with Down Syndrome) and Saatchi & Saatchi made this 2.5 minute advert in response to a letter from a pregnant mother. The strapline is "everyone has the right to be happy". Seeing and hearing the messages from these 15 very different people (speaking in a variety of languages) to the pregnant mother increased my understanding of Down Syndrome and its many joyful as well as difficult realities. I found the ad very touching and extremely thought provoking in relation to Down Syndrome, parenthood, quality of life, happiness, difficulties and our differences. Do find 2.5 minutes to watch this ad and see how it shifts any perspectives for you.
