Another ranty moment

I now interrupt my vacation to have a moment of ranting. Please read this post first, so you will understand what I am ranting about. Otherwise, you'll just think I've finally gone off my rocker.

The Joy of Autism: Despicable

I love reading this little boy. He says things in such a beautiful way, with a depth and a meaning that most adults would aspire to achieve. He is six year old, Autistic, and he is like a little beacon of hope for all of us who have nonverbal children. Who knows, maybe one day Jaymes will type to me. Maybe he'll speak more. But now I know that even if he decides not to speak, that he has the possibility of other ways of communicating to me. Adam's blog opened my eyes to a different side of Autism, and put everything in a far more positive light for me.

And who would have the nerve, the cruelty, and the immaturity to make fun of Adam on his blog? "Anonymous", who are you? Are you a perfect being, someone completely free of any kind of imperfection? What makes you think you have any right to pass judgement on a sweet little boy? Grow the hell up.

Adam and Estee, don't let garbage like that comment get you down.

Anyway, as far as ranting goes.. no one insulted my child, nor is it really any of my business. But I'm one of those people who gets furious at anything like this, and everyone needs a good rant now and again. Besides, I'm hot, sweaty, tired, and at my mother in law's with two kids- I have earned the right to bitch about something. (I'm also avoiding posting about our less than enjoyable day so far... Bleh.)
