From the Autism Society of America:

” Today is world autism day.  Today, throughout the world, individuals will come together highlighting the needs and dreams of people living with autism.  Today, all of us at the Autism Society honor and respect each individual living with autism for who they are.  We celebrate and honor parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers and other professionals who provide support and love to those living on the autism spectrum.  We celebrate those who, years ago did not accept what they were and told they couldn’t do, and today have shown what they are capable of.  We celebrate those elected officials, businesses and religious leaders who value the beauty of a person with autism.”

Show some love and support to your community members living with Autism today.  Hug someone and show you care.images
