A Special Wish for World Autism Awareness Day

Happy World Autism Awareness Day and Autism Awareness Month!

Today, in honor of World Autism Day and Autism Awareness Month, I am sharing a video that I hope you will find as inspiring and encouraging as I do. It is a brief clip of a young man with autism singing our national anthem at Fenway Park. When he came down with a severe case of the giggles while he was still singing, the entire crowd came to the rescue.

It is one of my favorite videos because it shows what is possible when a community embraces inclusion and makes it their business to value, welcome, accept and support people with disabilities. Every time I watch it, it brings tears to my eyes.

My sincere hope is that every person with a disability could experience this type of kindness every day of their lives.
