Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of Robert Kennedy, and this report has us reflecting on something he said, “Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted, when we tolerate what we know to be wrong, we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy or frightened to speak up or speak out, we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice.”
If you suspect a person with autism is being abused or mistreated in a school setting, day program, therapy center, residential facility, etc… please speak up! The most vulnerable are often the targets so we must speak up for those who cannot.
Be their voices. Be the change.
