 National Council on Disability's Letter to the President after Newtown Tragedy


"Josephine loved the color purple. Born in Maryland, she grew up in a family of Ravens fans and developed an affinity for all things purple. She rarely left the house without wearing something purple..."
Still praying and shedding tears for all the victims, family and friends. This, I believe, hits everyone's heart no matter where we are from.

 *thank you Lisa Waters

Does Asperger's effect one's DNA, or Geins? I just heard that they are going study the DNA of the Newtown Shooter. The are going the study the DNA to see if they can identify the Geins of his mental illness that makes people do this horrible acts. Would it be a start to another type of profiling and what would they do with people that have the potential to be violent?

My Life With Asperger's How to live a high-functioning life with Asperger's. by John Elder Robison

RT @LoveThatMax: Too true. RT @hollyrpeete "It’s really hard to unscare people" CT coverage creates dangerous stereotypes of autism.

A request from a cyber friend:

The Parents Like Us Club is a collaborative blog for parents of children and adolescents diagnosed with mental illnesses.
We are working on meeting with Senator Dick Durbin and other senators in Washington DC sometime early in the new year, to bring them our children's stories because mental health care and educational support need to be front and center in whatever plans President Obama has in the wake of the tragedy in Connecticut.
Email us at parentslikeusclub@gmail.com if you'd like to share your story, contact your senator, come to Washington, or any of the above.

Thanks!

I do not keep re-posting these links to be an alarmist, but as resource to educate one's self. More importantly others that are not familiar with disability culture. I do not mean to seem as I have no sympathy for the families, I have cried many times over the weekend.  What happen last week will effect generations. Not only there will be un-opened presents under the Christmas tree, but this could end marriages and families.

This is an interesting article, I remember when I was at Ridge I would get frustrated and had now way to express, or release it.  Sometime it would get to the point that they would take to the PT room and let me beat the shit out of a bean bag chair. Who knows if that was wrong, or right?

Why are they wasting time taking the same sex marriage act to the Supreme court? People voted and it will be a law now, same sex marriage will not kill people, or be the end of society.  The bigger issue is the innocent people that keep getting killed by guns. At least 27, including 18 children, dead in Connecticut school shooting: report
