Thank You!

Yesterday I gained nearly 20 blog followers. I had no idea why and thought it was because of the Facebook group I started, "I won't quit until I have 102,541 log followers". As I came into work this morning and started my blog entry about my lack of team play I checked my e-mail and had 4 comments on my April 2nd entry. "Weird" I thought, so I did a search and after about 2 minutes I found that Autism Speaks had posted that story's link on their Facebook page.

While I want to thank them for doing that I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to read it. The more each person knows the better advocate they can be. I feel that the generally public isn't mean or discriminative towards people on the spectrum because they want to be, but rather because they quite simply don't understand. Together, through everyone's effort, we can make a HUGE difference and it starts with awareness and from that will come understanding.

  1. Aaron, that is a powerful message and one I say ALL THE TIME regarding my children on the spectrum: "Through awareness comes knowledge, which breeds understanding. And THAT is so powerful."

    Thank you for sharing your experiences. The more people out their talking, the less 'different' we seem.
