B is for Blue

   
     If you didn't know, April is Autism Awareness Month. More than that, today is the fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day!

     Today, people all over the world are wearing blue to support Autism Awareness. Who will you wear blue for? I don't have a personal relationship with anyone with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. However, this post and my wearing blue are in honor of my online friend and blogging buddy, Heather. Heather's son has Asperger's Syndrome.

     Also during the month of April, many people and businesses will be participating in Light It Up Blue. From their site, "Light It Up Blue is a unique global initiative to help raise awareness about the growing public health concern that is autism."

I'm really happy that the Catholic church recently got involved with this. Our local church is doing awareness programs all month!

I had no idea April is National Autism Month, I'm so glad I dropped by to check, and how great they are bringing awareness to it. Namaste.

Thanks for posting about Autism. I have an older brother with Autism, and my parents have struggled for so long trying to help him. The awareness wasn't the same 30+ years ago - it was almost nonexistent.

I'm happy for all the children who will be getting help and assistance because we are so aware now.

I stopped by from teh A/Z world -- really have enjoyed checking out your blog. I am a school counselor and I know how challenging children will autism can be for their parents. Families need all the support they can get.
