WORLD AUTISM DAY – Today we are encouraged to wear blue to begin the celebration of World Autism Month. The celebrations today will use the tagline Light It Up Blue and are targeted at increasing awareness and understanding of the Autism Spectrum Disorder. Check out the Autism Speaks website for more information.
I have had the pleasure of working with many kids with autism in my years as a hand-drumming facilitator. I celebrate all of my drummers and especially James, my non-verbal guy who always wanted to wear my various hats and who literally brought tears of joy to my eyes in our wonderful concerts.
Happy April 2nd!
