3 Things - Tuesday, March 21

  1. Today is World Down Syndrome Day (video)

  2. James Martin's dad tells of pride as Belfast actor is first star with Down's Syndrome to win Oscar
    Speaking to BBC Radio's Good Morning Ulster, his father Ivan Martin said: "It’s an amazing feat. It’s something that nobody can ever take away from him. When you’re the first to do anything, it’s there for life and that’s how it is with him."

  3. Chris Burke — After Life Goes On (The first prime-time star with Down Syndrome)
    "I spent the day with the actor, who was 23 at the time, and his father, along with the cast and crew of the series. I liked Chris immediately. From the first few minutes, he had me laughing—or groaning—with his puns and awful jokes."
