    Thanks Carrie for the article. You seem to always to shine a light of understanding where there is a fog of ignorance and lack of understanding.

    Even though “I have more days behind me than in front of me”, you still provide inspiration to learn about others that have it tougher that most of us.

    Keep observing and putting it in print.

    You always write so beautifully from a child’s perspective, but this post touched me even more than usual because you’ve written about a child you don’t know so well as your own. I always try to make eye contact and smile at someone like Sebastian (and teach my children to do the same), but after reading this I know I have to do better. We all need reminders that non-verbal people are often perfectly able to see, hear, think and feel. Thank you.

    When I was in high school we had a girl with cerebral palsy. We were mean to her and most of the time we picked on her. I don’t know why because I was raised better than that. And I don’t know why because I was a loner myself not really fitting in. I feel bad when I think about it now. I really wish I could go back and be different to those that were different. I have just made sure tnat as an adult I don’t treat people different and teach my children the same. Thanks for putting such a nice perspective on it. I bet Sebastian’s mom appreciated being able to talk about her son with you.
