The 6- and 7-year-old Hollis brothers felt the need to record a YouTube video standing up against bullying for their adopted sisters Meg and Alina; they both have Down Syndrome.
“We live in a small town in Central Illinois and woke one morning in April 2011 to find our home and cars had been spray painted,” says Anne Hollis.
The family had been attacked because her two daughters have Down Syndrome: “RETARDS.” “Get Outta here.” And other unprintables.
“That day changed my life forever.”
But her two sons said they wanted to make a video, to “Speak up for our sisters.”
