Blue for World Autism Awareness Day
You hear about it
You may speak of it
You may support its cause;
But its context doesn’t fully reverberate
Until your life is touched
And changed forever.
Until the diagnosis prompts
Understanding, Action, and Hope;
And launches a renewed meaning to life:
Life with autism.
For World Autism Awareness Day, not only did I wear blue, but I drank blue. It was a lovely refresher in honor of family and friends; colleagues; educators; supporters; and all those who live their daily lives with the shades of Autism. They are a blue band of super heroes. Cheers!
