Dear Anderson Cooper,
I am a mother. A mother to a beautiful, sweet and kind Autistic little boy. We too are grieving for the families and friends and town of Newtown Ct. We are also outraged at most of the media's careless reporting about Lanza and his possibly being Autistic. When I heard about you making a statement that Autism doesn't mean a violent person, I had to come and personally thank you. I run a facebook page and blog in honor of my son and his autism and to educate others. In a few hours the media destroyed much of the education I was able to accomplish with just one report. Many people know nothing of autism, and now they think our kids are monsters. As a parent, and advocate THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, thank you from our families, and thank you from my son Liam, for trying to set this record straight for my son and the 1 in 88 kids/adults like him.
Sincerely,
A mother who cares
Courtney Barnum

Does anyone even ask why there is 1
out of 88 kids like him?
Kids have born since the beginning of time and yet there are more autistic children and adults than ever before.
Why?
And Why does autism effect more boys than girls. Why?
