Ignorance Persists (or why I am Warrior Mom)

I continue to be floored by how widespread ignorance is. This is emblematic of the kind of crap my kids deal with every day.

With all the autism awareness programs going on, you would think people would know better. And every day, I am reminded--firsthand, by my own experience in our own little corner of the world--how very far we have to go.

It's no wonder I've become the person I am.

The good news is that my boys will be tougher than anyone or any problem anyone can ever throw at them.

The bad news is that at 9 and almost 6 years of age, they are fighting on the front lines.

This is not something I want for them. But by dint of their situations, this is who they are.
