Blue or Not?
Autism Speaks is lighting it up blue, and so are many autism advocates this coming month. Some advocates are choosing other colors. Chances are, if we're impacted by autism, we're going to be acknowledging autism awareness month one way or another.
And there's a good chance that there will be some divisiveness in how some of us go about it. Whatever your position is on Autism Speaks, ASAN, etc., I respect your right to express that opinion.
Whatever we do, as members of the autism community (mythical or not, Harold), we'll continue to do the work we do every day to create not just awareness of autism, but acceptance, accommodation, and action to make the world a better place for our autistic family members and friends.
Here's to making the world a little brighter, a little softer, a little kinder.
