Yesterday I presented at an elementary school as part of their autism awareness week. Did you read that? Read that again; autism awareness week! Each day this week this school had a speaker talking on the subject of autism. Sometimes there's a day, or hour devoted to this, but for this school it's a week.
As usual, during the Q&A segment of my presentations, the questions blew me away. Today's kids are taking profound to the next level as one question was, "If you could go back in time and press a button to remove autism, would you?"
I don't have much time to write about my experience yesterday as my marathon of scheduled events truly starts today as I think I'm busy through mid-June now with a presentation this morning and a flight to San Antonio this afternoon, but the experience I had with the students, teachers, and principal yesterday was nothing short of one of the most hopeful things I've experienced.
