Hopefully this will be the shortest post I will ever write. Hillary listened. We in the autism community asked her to recognize us. And she did. Yet again. At the the Democratic National Convention. She spoke about a mother with two kids with autism who also had cancer. Those of us with one kid with autism sometimes don't know how people with more than one, more than autism, do it. So this very short message is to thank Hillary Clinton and to remember a dear friend of mine, Lois Pilot of San Clemente, California. She was the mother of two sons, one with autism and she died at the age of 37 from cancer. She spent part of her childhood in Love Canal. We need the Democrats to fix all of this.
