Light It Up BLUE !

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. 
We want to use this space today for this message.
Please take some time and learn about autism.
 To me working with children with autism has been a life changing experience.

Light It Up Blue !

"On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on 
Saturday, April 2.
We’re aiming to light the world blue all throughout April — city by city, town by town — by taking action to raise autism awareness in our communities."

"Together, let us travel this road toward a more caring and inclusive world."
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

"If I could snap my fingers and be nonautistic, I would not - because then I wouldn't be me. 
Autism is part of who I am."
Temple Grandin
