It was a feel-good love.
A the-world-could-use-more-people-like-this love.
An all-we-need-is-love love.
It's called, "Born This Way".
BORN THIS WAY chronicles the lives of a group of young adults born with Down syndrome as they pursue their passions while defying society's expectations. The series also follows their parents who share their own journey of joy, sacrifice, and unconditional love.Unlike most "reality" shows that are filled with disturbing behavior and distasteful storylines, "Born This Way" is a breath of fresh air. It makes you feel like you should be doing more to make the world a better place instead of stinking it up with your silly hang-ups and minor problems. It's a show that needs to stick around to dim the spotlight that is so often placed on negative programming.
During last year's premiere, I immediately shared on Twitter just how enamored I was with this inspirational group.

Enough of me telling you about this wonderful show. Here is a teaser for Season 2 of "Born This Way" airing on Tuesday, July 26 at 10 PM on A&E Network:
How can you walk away from this and not want to be a better person? You can't! It's the power of being positive. It's infectious and inspires you to do more because you can and need to. Some people just have that quality about them.
I know a woman who is an inspiration. She is a caring wife and mother. Her professional life exemplifies her ability to be great at just about everything is life. She always carries a smile. Her spirit lights up a room. She is always willing to help and never wants the recognition. For that, I won't share her name. But, I will be partnering with A&E to send her a special gift just to let her know that she is appreciated.
With all of the madness going on in the world, it's nice to know that change can start at anytime to stop this war on humanity. Kindness, honesty, love and respect can shoulder a lot of the pain that we are carrying around. Most of our problems are small if we just face them with the confidence that trouble won't last forever. We are all given life to leave a footprint on Earth. Our story belongs to us. Tell it with a purpose.
If you're seeking inspiration, start by watching "Born This Way" when it airs on Tuesday, July 26 at 10 PM on A&E Network. You won't ever be the same again...and that's a good thing.
