Autism Trek

Inspiration comes in all shapes and forms.  Last month on Positively Autistic: The Poet's Interest With Marilyn and Ryan, we had a guest who planned to walk from Wisconsin to Washington D.C. in order to gain some political attention for autism awareness.  Diane Burbacher is one determined Grandmother who hopes by walking 1500 miles she would be able to get legislators to pass motions that will help those on the autism spectrum receive necessary services.  Starting this June, Diane hopes to reach Washington DC in August with a 50 pound pack and some attention to a great cause.  She is certainly determined to provide help to her two grandchildren.  They are quite lucky to have her in their lives.
