Here is a guest piece written by my nephew for Autism Awareness and National Siblings Day about his oldest brother. It’s filled with love and appreciation of the beauty each one of us holds and has to share with the other!
brodyman_Happy #NationalSiblingDay and #AutismAwareness Month from the big bro and I! Can’t thank this dude enough for all the love and support he has given me throughout the years. There is a quote that reads “autists are the ultimate square pegs, and the problem with pounding a square peg into a round hole is not that the hammering is hard work. It’s that you’re destroying the peg.” With that having been said I just want to say I wouldn’t change a thing about this man. Never. So as the month of April continues on I genuinely hope that all people take some time to make themselves aware of what autism really is and what it entails. After all, square pegs don’t fit into round holes for a reason… Embrace it. Love it. Be thankful for it. The difference is what makes them unique. For example, over the years I have watched Dalton befriend numerous people of an assortment of backgrounds due to his genuinely positive outlook on everyday life. He loves and takes joy from the little things like meeting new people, getting to watch trains pass by, and petting dogs. I admire that, and if we all lived our lives that way the world as we know it would be a much happier place. Therefore, I am proud to say I ❤️ someone with autism. ? 6/4/93
