Okay, I don't really ever know how I feel about that line. I'd probably be happier if autism wasn't part of my life and I'm not happy about the crazy increase of autism among all of our children. I'm tired of the government not taking the rise of autism seriously and not putting more research dollars into unbiased studies.
But Autism Awareness Month gets me excited! All the events planned around the country, all the fundraisers, all the exposure this disorder and our children get! The Empire State Building will be lit up blue tonight for autism awareness!! Walks are being held all over the country- including three different locations on April 25 right here in Maine!
So look in your local newspapers, your local ASA chapters, TACA, Generation Rescue, Autism Speaks, etc. and see what is going on in your neighborhood and see how you can help!
