A Vigil (part 2)

This is an update from my previous entry:

I have attended the virtual vigil that was set up. There was one person that was doing a live broadcast for us. Thank you so much for doing that, hopefully you'll find this message and if not, just know that we appreciated what you did. Unfortunately, the broadcast got cut short most likely due to technical difficulties.

I did a little searching and I found a blog detailing personal stories in response to the injustice that was done:

And I found a news coverage of one of the vigils that was held yesterday:

I don't have Autism, or Asperger's Syndrome, so I don't have personal stories to tell about myself, but I have personal stories about helping people with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. I have a few friends with Autism. A couple of them have Asperger's, and a couple of them have nonverbal Autism. One of those friends that have nonverbal Autism is my cousin. I know how bright they can be. They have a voice too. They need to be heard. I'm here to help, to be an advocate. I know, that with a little help, they can be one of the best people you have ever known. To some of you who think autistic people are retards, you have no idea what they can be capable of. I admire the parents that never give up on their child.

I've had my own struggles with my disability. I've been to hell and back. I've had people put me down, calling me a retard and such. Yes, that may only be a tiny little speck compared to some people, but I've had my share of troubles and rough times. Our troubles make us stronger in the end, and sometimes, we can accomplish more than you would think. Sometimes, we even surprise ourselves.

Until next time, God Bless.

  1. Hi Nichloe. Yeah, my netbook's bettery died, but all that was left to the broadcast was Justin Dart's widow reading some comments, then a movement song. :) The full video of the DC vigil will be put up on youtube by the autistic self-advocacy network.

    1. Well, thank you for the info. I will be sure to watch out for the video and add it to my blog. :)
