This is a special person in my life. His favorite color is green. His favorite sport is soccer, and his favorite music is found on the Guitar Hero games. Like a lot of kids, he goes to school, and his favorite subject is reading. He loves swimming, computer games, and eating. He likes to dress up as Spider Man for Halloween, and wishes he could be Spider Man in real life. He has his own likes, dislikes, talents, and quirks. He breathes air, his heart beats, his mind thinks, and he has feelings. Oh yeah, by the way, he has autism, but really he’s just another human like you and me, and loves to be treated as one.
"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. ©2010 - nothingbuteverything
you are NOT authorized to use this work unless I have given you my explicit (online) permission (contact me in any way on here, and I will reply to you, either agreeing or declining). THIS IS NOT STOCK. All rights reserved. Features are most welcome, and if you link it to another site, you MUST give credit to this account. If you use it without my permission, you are not only stealing from me, but are also stealing from him, and that's just cruel. Sorry for the watermark and small view size, it will not be that way on the prints, but I have received word that the picture has already been stolen on another site and am taking no chances.
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!
**Life will be very busy soon during summer months, so bear with me as far as responses go, please .**
