So, as many (probably all) of you should know, I am a HUGE supporter of all things Autism Awareness.

November 1st has been declared as the Day of Silence for Autism. A day when you are supposed to be quiet, in hopes that you might understand autistic individuals better.

Eff that.

If you want to understand what it MIGHT be like to be autistic, try communicating with the folks around you. Fail at it. Autistic people are not mute.

If you really want to help Jamie McMurray, a NASCAR car race dude, who has an autistic niece, is doubling all donations to Autism Speaks. Go and donate. All proceeds go to autism education. The trick is figuring out WHY they CAN'T communicate, and developing teaching methods to assist them with communication.

Staying silent doesn't help.
