Autistic Basketball Player

It is inspiring to see children with disabilities supported by their peers.

I will always remember how the senior class cheered for Cody at high school graduation.

We can learn so much from people with special needs.

I never tire of watching that video...I can only hope that when my daughter gets to middle school and high school that her peers are that supportive.

That video made me cry like a baby. It reminds of when my son finally graduated from elementary school last May. The principal clearly told the crowd that there would be no cheering until the end. The parents and faculty followed the rule until Griffin walked across the stage. Then the teachers, students and about half the parents went nuts. He strutted across that stage like a rock star with an ear to ear grin plastered on his face.

I think it is safe to say most people are compassionate. Inclusion is a wonderful thing for everyone.

BD...that is wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Did you get Griffin's graduation on video? We've got Cody's recorded, but he won't let us watch it, at least while he's around (autistic reasoning involved).

Lynn...I am positive your daughter will have similar experiences and I'm sure Big Daddy would agree.
