Letters of Appreciation – Dr. Temple Grandin

And none will hear the postman’s knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
~W.H. Auden


Dear Temple

I’m writing to you today, on National Autism Awareness Day, to thank you for being a beacon of light for parents with children on the spectrum.  When can tell them about your struggles and  accomplishments and how they too can change the world….

Choosing to write to Temple today was a no-brainer.  Jason and I went to hear her speak two years ago and she was a force.  She is smart and willing and wanting to help: help us parents and help our kids succeed.  She is a rock star among autism parents and she takes on that responsibility with great enthusiasm.  In June, she will be speaking at the yearly autism conference in Cleveland and I’m looking forward to seeing her once again.  She is 69 and I wish I had her energy!

So, who can you write to today?
