Autism Awareness day

Autism Speaks community is lighting the world up Blue today to raise awareness and help fund research. So to celebrate we're lighting ourselves up blue...wearing blue anyway :) We have a quite a few friends on the Autism spectrum and they are some of the nicest, smartest, fantastic people you could ever hope to meet. Their parents are some of the toughest people on the planet. They fight every day to help their children not only be accepted by society (which it should anyway come on get with it people) but to express themselves as freely as any other person. Just as with Down Syndrome Day which we celebrated last month I won't name all the wonderful people in our lives, but want to reflect on how much they teach us. Help us to think, love, and smile more. If you have been blessed to know or raise or be one of these people then today is all about you and celebrating how special and wonderful you really are. If you would like to learn more please check out Autism Speaks and find out what you can do in your community.
