Please read carefully ~ Autistic Plee

DISABILITY DAY OF MOURNING.

As someone who lives with disabilities, I say disabled lives matter just as much as able-bodied lives.
A very important distinction needs to be made, and this is one that I referenced at the time of Hannah Clarke’s murder, if a terminally ill person wishes to die with dignity and their partner doesn’t want to live without them and their partner begs them to ease their suffering, that is a tragedy for those who get left behind; to murder a disabled person who wants to live, but is seen as a burden by their caregiver is a crime against humanity.
But there is another category of people we should be mourning, and as an autistic, I say this is vitally important, those who die by their own hand not because they can’t care for themselves, but because society makes them feel disabled. The autistic teenagers who commit suicide because of bullying. Autistic lives lost must NEVER be used as a justification to find a cure for autism! What needs to be done is to remember Mark Twain’s statement that, “No amount of evidence will ever satisfy an idiot,” and if you don’t want to be one, then accept autistic people for who we are.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

Jesus left certain people mentioned in the bible without curing them and those people when asked said it was to highlight their disability …..We need to understand a person a a person first …..I worked in care for a number of years and one day a lady who was disabled asked me if someone would love her as she was disabled.
I answered him with this …….She must be loved for herself first and that person who feels that really loves her and anyone who sees her as disabled first, does not truly love her for her ….It made her cry.
Believe it not another carer reported me for making a resident cry …..I told the manageress later she was weeping for love ….and if as carer we cannot provide care in that way then we do not understand care is love

Tears run down my face reading these words. God loved you before you were born. In your voyage, you are blessed to write these words of compassion. This is a blessed life, my friend. Walk this earth with no shoes. Humble โšœ๏ธโšœ๏ธ

Powerful words. The author of those words is unquestionably unique. A journalist who lives his journey in words. The beauty within humans is all slithered of fractured glass turned into the magnificence of one Diamond Soul. Your words resonate truth. โšœ๏ธ humbled โšœ๏ธ
