One day, this won’t be news

Call me a dreamer. Call me idealistic. But I have a vision of a world in which people like Grace Ramsburg can be in a Super Bowl commercial and it won’t be so extraordinary.

But for now, I rejoice in the fact that this 8-year-old cutie, who has Down Syndrome, will have a brief appearance in a McDonald’s commercial during the big game.

Grace’s mom Holly Ramsburg says she’s not sure if her daughter realizes what a big deal this is.

She told Disability Scoop, “There’s still misunderstanding and there’s still judgment.

“I feel like everyday when we go out and we’re able to get her face out there, and get her personality out there, it is wonderful.”

One day, this won’t be a newsworthy event. I hope I get to see it. I hope Holly does, too.
