Down's Syndrome

Glasgow is a tough city and Glaswegians have a reputation for being hard and uncompromising.  I know I was born there. Yesterday as I took photographs as part of the Downs Syndrome Scotland calendar project I couldn’t help but look around me and saw this moving scene.  Here one of the football coaches is seen helping one of the wee players and it was by no means a solitary example.  Stigma then is everywhere and I’m thinking that the impact of scenes like this is magnified when we see something which contradicts prejudices which are so established its like they are beyond contention.
