Thursday, March 21, 2013 has been designated as World Down Syndrome Day. Alabama Governor Robert Bentley showed his support by signing a proclamation recognizing World Down Syndrome Day in Alabama.
It is a day set aside to raise awareness and educate the general public about Down syndrome.
As a show of support, people are being asked to wear brightly colored socks, mismatched socks, or even extra socks - to signify the extra chromosome that people with Down syndrome usually carry.
