Tuesday's Tribute - Spread the Word to End the Word

I am totally about to copy a fellow blogger whose insights I really love. But isn't imitation supposed to be the ultimate sign of respect? It is in this case. (Go check her out: http://whitterer-autism.blogspot.com/).

Yesterday there was another blogger challenge:

Tuesday's Tribute
Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.
We are supposed to blog about and shine some light on anyone but ourselves. It could be about another blogger, a friend or family member we respect or admire, about a business we would like to support, or about a cause we believe in.
Last night I fully intended to write this post about the same thing that Whitterer did, but she beat me to the punch. So now I'll copy her because it succinctly says all that I wanted to say.




Soeren’s courage to say what he believed in front of his entire school was inspired by the love between a brother and sister.

I made this personal pledge to myself many years ago before I knew personally how hateful this word would be to my family. Please spread the word, if not just to be a better person, but for Owen and Will.

I can't get the sound to play either on your page or YouTube :(

What a shame! It's so worth listening to. If you click on the button "Spread the Word.." I'm sure there are other videos on the site. It works for me on both of my computers.
