Have you ever noticed that you become more aware of something or someone when it touches or enters your life? Something as simple as noticing a different style of a car, or someone carrying a new handbag. All of a sudden you see them everywhere! You become to realize they're not "new" you are just "aware" they exist.
Apparently Autism awareness has been celebrated since the 1970's .... I only knew this disorder was in existence for maybe the past 10 years. Now, it seems to be on the news, in magazine articles and in social discussions on a regular basis. Autism has touched my life in a personal way making me more personally "aware."
I ask that you take a moment to read the attached article and make yourself more aware of this difficult neurological disorder. When you see a child (usually) a boy out of control, not listening to a parent or maybe screaming take a moment before you judge the parent as being "lazy" and ask yourself, "is he/she Autistic?" These children need our prayers, love and patience.
In honor of National Autism Awareness month the Origami Owl Company has created a special charm ....
|The tiny puzzle pieced heart has been designed to create the symbol to represent Autism.|
