shine a light

this evening thru tomorrow are national autism awareness day. they say 1 in every 110 kids has some form of autism. is it the environment or the preservatives in all the inoculations the kids have to take that is causing this? who knows. whatever the cause know that those afflicted can and do function in society. my buddy's daughter is pretty severe, and my own daughter has a form, but thankfully is doing just fine, in large parts due to the excellent work of the professionals at our local school.

with numbers this high, it benefits us all to donate to help find the cause and treatment, and hopefully a cure for this malady.

  1. You beat me to the punch. I'll be highlighting this as well for Autism Awareness Month. When we were kids, no one had really heard of autism; I know I was in my teens before I was aware. Whether that was just lower incidences of affliction, lower rates of diagnosis, or just not enough understanding of the spectrum to even make a proper diagnosis I couldn't say....but for better than 1 full per cent of all kids to be on the spectrum, to me, says there's been a subtle change in our very DNA....whether from chemicals or high fructose corn syrup or preservatives...who can say...


your thoughts on what you see and read are welcome here. be advised, try to hurt my feelings and i will hurt yours.
