Proud to have an Autistic child...(Journal#72)


Today is Autistic Pride Day, which had me all set up to write about it.

Write about it that is....until I received the Google news alert that David Kirby had an article in the Huffington Post that frustrated me.

Write about it that is...until I visited my friend Kristina's site. Her post today made me proud to know her works and her Charlie's story. It deals with a huge debate in our community, and for me sums up how I feel about David Kirby's root into the autism community (which he is apparently pulling out now).

Thanks for your words today Kristina, I can not sum it up even close to your great post today!

I have never heard of this day. Anywhere.

Well, I'm glad you're here to celebrate it! LOL!!!!

I read Kristina's article.

I have no idea where I stand on this. It appears that people are pretty polarized by it.

I just don't know.

Hope your son had a great time at camp!
