"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away." - Henry David Thoreau

Update: To answer a frequent question I'm seeing: Yes, I am sharing with him his feedback, and no, he didn't technically write the text himself, but he did to the best of his ability, so he deserves the credit. In my opinion, yes he wrote it and deserves the credit because he did his very best and that's all anyone can do.

We have also decided to enable this as a print, mug, magnet, and postcard, and 100% of the profits will go to a wonderful organization that runs a program for people with disabilities that is close to our hearts: Easter Seals Camp Stand By Me [link] If you can, help us help them!

So many kids with autism are very special beings who need bigger love most of all ^^
Shit, it looks like my entire family has autism. my dads aspie, i'm borderline aspie, my little bro's aspie and my dad is convinced my mom's aspie. and the "professionals" don't know shit. People tend to judge books by covers and unfortunately with autism (especially asperger's), instead of seeing someone "abnormal", they see someone completely fine and when you can't handle something they don't get it and push u away because they can't understand.
Don't let people tell u you can't do shit cus you're autistic, cus u CAN!
And forgive ignorance, unfortunately the majority of the "normal" population seem to suffer from it.

PS: Sorry if i have grammar mistakes or something, i wish i could express my self better (i've got so much more to say about this) but i do my best, i can only say: Congratulations! Fantastic job.
and everone on dA have it...
Youre right! Every human deserves the same chances! But it seems that many people forgot this and many are still forgetting. Why is that?
I dont know! But I know one thing: We are all the same: humans in this world. Everyone deserves the same: a good future.
Hang on and try your best! I hope people will understand at one day.
Good Luck and a happy future
Sorry for my bad english (I'm from germany and still learning )
It's confusing to me to think that I'm still worth as much as everyone else even though I have HFA. I mean, if I was worth something, people wouldn't tell me I'm the worst sort of person and that my mother should have aborted me, right? If I was worth something, my dad wouldn't have turned... cold toward me... after he learned of my diagnosis.
I'm still a warrior though and I have my respect. i know I shouldnt kill myself
and am worth more than sex.
youre worth a lot. the way I see it. life IS a gift and when you recieve gifts do you throw them away? no, you keep them and cherish them regardless of if you really like it or not. Its a present, so you have to live in the now, let go of the past but learn from it so you can feel hope for the future.
my life is hell, but I still do what i do, Yeah I cry but i wear the tears pridefully and still smile honestly and big.
You gotta be strong, people who say shit like that are ignorant and afraid.
They will never have wisdom like you and i, they dont know what strength is because they dont understand there weaknesses.
besides. i dont look at humans like products, each quirk and difference makes you beautiful and better. different truly is better. i think its fascinating.
were not products made to look like the last one, we're flowers hoping to grow stronger and better than expected of us.
basically it doesnt matter what flower you are, you gotta be the best one you can be, thats what makes you beautiful.
ugh god i talk a lot, that was the most unorganized passage i've ever written. I'm sorry lol.
