April never ends for us. It begins with Fool’s Day, ends with a May Day that we will holler until the day we die. You won’t hear about autism in the news any longer. You won’t hear about autism in many places these days. The clarion call for vaccination choice and safety that we set forth decades ago still exists though. Many of us are here because we helped light that torch, hoping to shed insight into the dark stories of how our kids were harmed. We had gumption. We sacrificed reputations. Careers. We took slings and arrows for years and years. Some of our children are adults now. Still needing our love, our care, our blood, sweat and oh yes our tears.
We are still in The Age of Autism. Please don’t forget that.
