The Hollis family in Central Illinois woke up one spring morning to find their home and cars had been spray painted with things like, “RETARD” and “Get Outta Here.”

The family has two young sons and two daughters. Both girls, Meg and Alina, have Down syndrome. Anne Hollis, the kids’ mom, said the day changed her life forever. Her sons lives were changed, too. So much so that, at age 6 and 7, they said they wanted to make a video to speak up for their sisters.
