With great power comes great responsibility doesn’t only apply to Peter Parker – that’s what I keep learning
It’s 6: 40 PM on day 661 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a boiled egg and All Bran Flakes for breakfast, drink Green Tea by myself, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, work, exercise - stretch my hamstrings so they don’t get shorter from lack of movement – watch TV, feed myself Stir Fry for lunch and watch some more TV.
Today reading Holly Robinson Peete’s open letter to 50 Cent I was livid at 50 he tweeted i just saw your picture fool you look autistic responding to an insult I echo Holly’s question to 50 what exactly does “autistic” look like people like me who are visibly different have enough challenges without having to deal with the world’s ignorance so I implore everybody who has even a semblance of influence in this world to think before they speak, tweet or Facebook because words have the power to heal or to hurt. Are you responsible with your influence?
