Many people seem to have an issue with the organization Autism Speaks. They believe that it makes autism out to be a burden for people who have and for family members. However, as a person who has autism herself I don't believe that's the case.

Some are volcanoes erupting words and sounds.
Some just use their eyes as telescopes.
Being crazy doesn't mean being the offspring of Saden.

Without crazy,
There's no imagination.
Without crazy,
Where's life's color?

One night in the bus, I was in segundo grade, she got mad and threw a minor tantrum. Just crying and whining. The bus driver didn't know what to do, I didn't know what to do (she having being diagnosed not very long ago). But for me it was just Kalli throwing another tantrum. It was...
