I'm eternally graetful to have been given the lessons in Empathy, Respect for life, Understanding and Compassion that life has gifted me with so far.
My gratefulness has been brought to mind, from some disturbing developments in our local education arena. A young autistic boy kicked out of school, public support to get the "special needs kids out" has made me cringe. I had to collect the articles and make some comments. I posted it on my autism blog, but wanted to share here, because it's relevant to all of my life. Obviously, my lessons from Autism are the biggest in my life, have shaped me, blessed me with so much growth!
Please hop over to that blog and read and comment, love to hear your input.
