Compassionate Ridgefield

 These signs have sprouted all over town.  The website says "Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition that causes intellectual disability, behavioral and learning challenges, and various physical characteristics."  There must be a child in town suffering from this condition. 

A couple of years ago there was a similar outbreak of signs (and a gofundme campaign) supporting a pre-teenage Ridgefield girl with an inoperable brain tumor.  Regrettably she didn't make it, but the outpouring of visual and financial support for her made an impression on me.

Fragile X is new to me.
