It goes without saying that vaccines are the largest divider within our community. Regardless of what side of the line you stand on, passions run very deep. Often times, one side won’t have anything to do with the other side and the same goes for all the other factions.
In my opinion, this is a travesty because these divisions or factions are preventing a unified front.
If we want the world to be more aware, understanding and accepting of Autism, we can’t be seen fighting each other. We can’t be seen as a group of people who can’t even agree amongst ourselves on the things surrounding Autism. How in the world is anyone outside the community supposed to wrap their head around any of this?
At the end of the day, we’re only hurting ourselves, our cause and worst of all, our loved ones with Autism.
We’re making it difficult, if not impossible for people to understand what parents of kids with Autism go through and what people with Autism struggle with.
As the new year moves forward and we quickly approach April, please remember that regardless of our personal beliefs, the one thing we all have in common is that we love our kids with Autism and only want the best for them. Imagine the possibilities if we could unify around that..
