April is Autism Awareness Month. My heart was touched by this video. What a powerful reminder that though we all have challenges, we each have unique gifts and talents waiting to be discovered!
Here are a few comments about this video that were posted on YouTube:
"I have Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, and I am in college. I have a barely controllable tick where I laugh similar to an evil scientist. At 7:22...this one paragraph explained more about that tick in ten seconds than I had figured out for myself in 15 years. I wish all you haters and sympathizers alike could see what we see through our viewpoint rather than see it from the outside. To understand it is to delve into our minds and see how we work, to see why we don't work like you do."
"Thank you Carly for sharing your beautiful self with us. God bless you. You are an inspiration to all who have been touched by autism. Your parents are truly beautiful people."
"This is pretty cool, i have autism too (asperger's syndrome), and i have autistic friends too, and we are all pretty smart in our own separate way, although i don't know anyone quite as severely autistic as carly. anyway, this is nice, very inspiring."
"...We see why God says he judges the heart; we are so quick to look at the outward appearance and miss the value of the individual , "My ways are not your ways... Isaiah 55:8" Great Video!!!"
"Don't stop communicating!! You are a beautiful and amazing girl. Never allow anyone to get in your way. Not even yourself. I would like to think that the more you can describe how your body feels and how your mind works, you will be able to find treatments that will stop the pain and the frustration. If it hurts you and others, do all you can to make it clear so those who want to manage Autism so that stops. I don't want you or anyone else to live in agony and frustration. You are awsome Carly!!"
