Author: Don Fraser


Some people call me retarded
I prefer the term, mentally handicapped
It is true I seem strange to others
but I have my own thoughts on the subject.
Who is to say who is normal and who is not?
I am a human
I think and breath and drink and eat
just like anyone that are considered normal
Please do not be afraid of me
I am as very gentle person
I would never hurt anyone
I love everyone
Please treat me as a human
not as a freak.
