It’s Coming

Mark your calendars. Grab a blue Sharpie and circle April 2. April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day. It is the one day each year where the autism community can make our voices heard the loudest.

Last year, landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower were bathed in blue to raise awareness. I have written on here as well about my disappointment that the White House was not blue that day, or at all in April.

Participating is easy. You can head to Home Depot and get your very own blue light for your porch/front door area. We installed ours March 31 last year and it has not come down since. You can make it a point to wear blue that day to show your support as well.

There will be more posts over the next six weeks or so to keep World Autism Awareness Day on your mind, with some suggestions and links to help you be a strong advocate and voice. Soon, I will start my campaign to try to get the White House to turn blue this April, and you can certainly help with that as well by writing a letter to President Obama via the White House website.

World Autism Awareness Day is coming. Don’t stay on the sidelines.
