Around the tragic story of Ethan Saylor, another phenomena has happened.  Fathers who may never have crossed with day jobs from such different fields have joined together under the flag of support for Ethan Saylor.  Why?  For all of their differences- they share a significant life experience:  they are fathers of children with Down Syndrome.

In our week of covering the crowd-sourced phenomenon that has begun to bring some good out of a needless death, the voices of these fathers are one of them.

David Perry, associate professor of history, who wrote about the story for CNN Opinion and The Nation will be one of our fathers.  Blogging anonymously at LittleBirdsDad.com an Army veteran, entrepreneur, and step-father of three also joins us during this sure to be moving episode.  

For a summary background of the story- see http://demanddesign.net/professionals/public-policy/ethan-saylor

If all fathers are special, and all children are special- surely the fathers of extra-special children have something extra-special within to share with us.  Join us for the week, and don't miss this episode.  We'll be taking live callers- so fathers from everywhere can feel free to call in too!
