What do you want to be when you grow up? What’s your favorite food? These are questions every person has answers to.

To celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, siblings Lauren and Paul Costabile produced the short video below, called “More Alike Than Different.” In it, they asked kids with Down syndrome, as well as typically developing kids, some simple questions and recorded their answers.

The Costabiles, who made the video in collaboration with a number of Down syndrome organizations, are also the producers and creators of “Bailey’s World,” a TV show in development featuring a main character with Down Syndrome.

The message of the video above is clear — we all deserve to be loved, included and accepted in our society.

Check out the hashtag #MoreAlikeThanDifferent for more information.
