Day 22: Wretches and Jabberers

I know, again I am switching out my nonprofit! WorldHelp will come up again, trust me.

But today I saw an amazing trailer that completely blew me away. Everyone wants to be accepted, wants to be heard. I was teased a lot as a kid, but at least I could communicate and rise above it. So many autistic children simply cannot, until they learn they have a voice.

Two of my close relatives are autistic. One had a mild case, and I have never had a problem (though I've heard stories...). The other, however, is severely autistic and I have a very difficult time interacting with him. My difficulty does not make him any less of a person, just a different one. :)

Watch the trailer and tell me in the comments what you think. Also, if you have someone you care for who is autistic let me know! It is amazing what these people can do... we think that they have a disability but then the sheer stroke of genius you never expect hits you out of nowhere.
