Letter for Saved by Typing event, Nov. 17, 2012
Awesome to see you today. We are really amazingly and incredibly blessed with a support group that we didn’t have until we knew each other. I always take a moment at these wonderful times we get together to remember that not long ago was a different world for me and many friends remain in the isolation and coldness of autism with no voice. We owe our freedom from that desperate world to grace and people like Poorman and Alicia.
We save others and bring grace when we watch friends such as Lindsey demonstrate real intelligence. All we are and have can disappear again if we don’t teach the world about autism and the way it awfully hides competence. We say and acknowledge awesome thanks today. We must assume the fact that others support us is limited to now and continue our work to be free and open the gates of freedom for others. Thanks for being on this journey with me. The power that emanates from working together is amazing. That comes from you.
