As most of you know, my eldest son, Zack, has high functioning Autism. My second oldest son, Dwight, wanted to help make other people more aware of what Autism is and what it’s like for people with it and for their families.
So, for a project related to his Bar Mitzvah, Dwight is working to spread Autism Awareness, which he knows is the key to understanding of the syndrome and the people affected by it. He is petitioning the White House to get them to Light Up Blue for World Autism Awareness Day in April.
Dwight wants to show his adoration of his brother and work to help others be more knowledgeable of the Autism Spectrum. He thinks that lighting the White House blue will be a very visible symbol, as it is pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.
He has written a letter to the President, as well, and I will publish it later. So, for now, please go to his petition and sign it and spread the word for the Autism Community.
Thank you from our family to yours.
