In Recognition of MLK Day
When Martin Luther King announced those decades ago that he had a dream, I don't think that his words can be used to only proclaim equality between races. In his words, he had a dream that his four children would grow up in a world where people were not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I believe those words can be extended to to include those with disabilities and those with autism. So let us continue to work to accomplish his dream and add what knowledge we have since obtained, about autism and about other disabilities so that we all will be defined not by how we appear visually but the content of our character. Our ability to love and build upon what humanity has accomplished in the past. Let this dream become reality.
