Must read/watch - "In my language"

I would strongly encourage you to read the article Living with autism in a world made for others and watch the video created by Amanda Baggs.  Amazing and powerful and touching.

Caution: Read the article first, as the early part of the video, in Amanda's native language, is hard to understand without the context.

Thanks, Ben. This is such a valuable post.

I suspect personal blogs combined with YouTube may just become the most powerful drive in adjusting this planet's thought patterns, beliefs, preconceptions and ideas. Within ten minutes of watching this video, I had so many browser tabs open on linked conversations, really challenging me at the core, it became almost overwhelming.
