My Everyday

"And when I'm at home then I decide for myself when I watch TV or when I sit at the PC, and when I go to bed. I've made my times, now lets see, 6:50pm is always when it's time to put on pyjamas, and at 9pm it's time to brew the bedtime tea and at 10pm on weekdays I always go to bed. All of that I decided myself, because I want it like that, and that is a regular timetable."

Katja Sothmann, Ohrenkuss Editorial Team, handwritten

I have a good life.
That is special in life so good, that is a good feeling.
In the belly.
I want to have my life, that feels so good.

Martin Weser

Luckily each day comes only once in life.
For example today.

Politics

Politics

For people with Down syndrome it is the same as for people without.
Some are interested in politics.
Others are not.

You can think day and night.
When you think during the day, that is normal thinking in everyday life.
When you think at night, that’s called dreaming.

Travel

Travel

Many people love to travel.
Also with Down syndrome.
If they prefer to travel to Mongolia or in the Eifel, will be revealed here.

I am a part of society.
Even if I see the world differently to non-disabled people.

Julia Bertmann

Every day I look out of the window.
It is variously unimportant.

Happiness

Happiness

What makes people with Down syndrome happy?
Chips?
Cheesecake?
Sleeping-in?
Love?

My brain is like a cinema.

Adulthood

Adulthood

When are you an adult?
What defines being an adult?
And what defines being an adult for someone with Down syndrome?

I think many things.
But not every thing.

Old age

Old age

When is a person old? When they are 65? When they are 32? On this the TOUCHDOWN 21 team can not agree. In this article you will find a number of different opinions on the matter.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten

Ida is 5 years old and has Down syndrome. She goes to "Schulberg" Kindergarten. Behrang Samsami visited her there and wrote about it.

Courage, I wanted to say dare. In good times or in bad times. When I have courage, I do good things. I don't have to overcome anything. I have a good time: I am courageous.

Daniel Rauers

Communication

Communication

What is communication?
To talk to each other.
To listen to one another.
To look at one another.
People with Down syndrome write about this too.

Self-determination

Self-determination

To decide for yourself means to me very, very important.

– Verena Elisabeth Turin

Today I don't feel like doing anything. No one can tell me that I can't do that. I say that because I can. High-performance-chilling.
