Please read and understand that this is just part of what my family goes through everyday. Ask my how you can help by the 9-9-09 campaign to the president, CDC, and the media. Also while you are reading this, you will notice that it jumps all over the place. It is like a conversation with an autistic child. If that child is verbal.
HOW MUCH LONGER?
WE WOKE UP TODAY
unsure of which issue to tackle first.
SHOULD WE WORK TO PAY FOR OUR TEENAGERS’ DIAPERS TODAY?
SHOULD WE GO AFTER FEDERAL LAWS
OR SHOULD WE IGNORE THE HEALTH OFFICIALS WHO SAY
OR WORRY ABOUT WHERE MILLIONS OF DISABLED ADULTS WILL LIVE
SHOULD WE SHOUT AT THE TOP OF OUR LUNGS TODAY THAT
should we try to prevent the next seizure today?
or work to keep more children from wandering off
AND DROWNING IN A LAKE?
after their parents are dead & gone?
PUNCHED, SUFFOCATED, OR LOCKED IN ROOMS AT SCHOOL?
TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM BEING
IT’S ALL JUST A BIG
or should we allow the harmful restraint & seclusion to continue?
REGRESSION FOLLOWING VACCINATIONS?
should we ignore the thousands of stories of
about the next child who will regress from
AUTISM IS TREATABLE &
OR SIMPLY NOD ALONG WITH THE MAINSTREAM DOCTORS WHO SAY WE’RE WRONG?
an over-the-top vaccination schedule?
SHOULD WE RAISE HELL TODAY
THEN AGAIN, SKYROCKETING DIVORCE RATES IN THE AUTISM COMMUNITY REALLY NEED OUR ATTENTION
OR SHOULD WE JUST LET IT HAPPEN?
or the ones who can’t stop hitting themselves? or the ones who don’t ever sleep?
should we worry about the children who will have violent meltdowns today?
or should we help the mother who is threatening suicide on this day?
better yet, maybe we should help the families who are bankrupt because
ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT “AUTISM” IS JUST A WORD
OR FIGHT FOR OUR CHILDREN’S THERAPY?
OR FIGHT FOR OUR CHILDREN’S RIGHTS?
OR FIGHT TO GET THEM
should we show up in washington today to yell about theZEROanswers our children have received from the billions spent on genetic research?
OR SHOULD WE WORK TO STOP THE NUMBERS THAT ARE NOW AT
SHOULD WE FALSELY AGREE THAT THE RISE IN RATES IS ONLY DUE TO BETTER DIAGNOSIS,WHEN WE KNOW
our kids weren’t smearing poop
30 years ago & banging their heads 30 years ago & flapping
ONLY TO GO UNNOTICED?
OR SHOULD WE WORRY TODAY ABOUT HOW THE AUTISM COMMUNITY IS OVERWHELMED &
SHOULD WE JUST THINK ABOUT GOING TO BED TONIGHT
WE’LL WAKE UP TOMORROW TO FIND THAT SOMEONE FINALLY
A NATIONAL HEALTH CRISIS
A NATIONAL EMERGENCY
& THAT FINALLY SOMEONE IS SAYING ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,
or pay for the funeral of the father who committed suicide yesterday?
SOME GUY CAME UP WITH 70 YEARS AGO
TO DESCRIBE A NEW, RARE MENTAL CONDITION THAT WE’RE FINDING IS ACTUALLY MORE
ENVIRONMENTAL. so, should we fight to reclassify this whole-body condition today?
OUT OF THIS HELL?
& unable to point to an object 30 years ago & unable
bathe & wipe & feed themselves & stay safe 30 years ago
AND HOW THE SWINE FLU’S NONEXISTENT PANDEMIC IS RECEIVING OVERREACTION & “FAST TRACKED” FOCUS
while autism’s already-existent epidemic gets slow-tracked solutions and profound underreaction?
OR PRESIDENT OBAMA
HOPING TO GOD
IS DECLARING AUTISM
let’s get some answers, let’s give some aid
or should we just let every American eventually find out for themselves how bad it really is?
OR FIGHT FOR OUR CHILDREN’S CURE?
or the ones who can’t point to what hurts, so all they can do is
OR FIGHT FOR OUR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION?
BEFORE IT’S 1 IN 20 CHILDREN?
HOW MUCH LONGER, PRESIDENT OBAMA, DO WE HAVE BEFORE THE HOPE FOR AMERICA’S CHILDREN FADES COMPLETELY?
LET’S FIGURE THIS OUT
their hands 30 years ago & unable to speak 30 years ago
A NATIONAL EPIDEMIC?
1 IN 100 CHILDREN?
AUTISM IS PREVENTABLE
HEALTH INSURANCE DOESN’T COVER AUTISM?
HOW MUCH LONGER, PRESIDENT OBAMA,WILL WE WAKE UP OVERWHELMED BY WHICH ISSUE TO TACKLE FIRST?
