When we all sing the same song

On Disability Awareness Day 2007 at Boston’s Fenway Park, a young man with Autism was chosen to sing the National Anthem. (He’s standing at the microphone behind the catcher, the camera will focus on him in just a moment.) Halfway through the song, his nerves got the better of him and he broke out in a case of nervous laughter. Rather than boo him back to his seat, the 30,000 fans join in and help him finish the song!

When we all pull together, we can move the world.

    We adopted three boys with various forms of autism and appreciate those who would blog on such an important subject. People more than ever need to be informed about autism and what life is like for those so affected since this debilitating condition seems to be on the rise.
