Social Causes

In seventh grade, Liam had the opportunity to advocate through writing about a cause in which he believes. He wrote and presented about Cure International, an organization that raises money to pay for operations to cure curable conditions in children overseas: This blog is actually not about his topic, however.

His teacher contacted me one afternoon during presentations.

One of Liam’s classmates had chosen to discuss raising funds to cure autism.

She shared that Liam had raised his hand politely after the presentation to say: if there was a cure for autism, then I wouldn’t be who I am.

She shared with me how well he spoke about himself while respecting the opinion and work of his classmate.

The fact that he shared this in front of the class floored me.

I feel the same way about him and his autism.
