Defining #Autism

It is with a heavy heart that I sit in front of my computer composing this blog entry about a subject I never thought I'd ever have to address.  My fear is growing by the hour since the awful tragedy in Sandy Hook Connecticut took place, as most people's have.  It is the realization of one of our worst fears when someone commits heinous acts of violence against small children in a public place at random.  We didn't know it was coming.  We don't know why.  It is senseless and without meaning.  This person's actions leave behind a trail of sorrow, pain and fear.  Many lives will never be the same, forever altered by the their loss, whether that loss be of a loved one, or of the the feeling of safety that was taken from them.  We as humans scramble to try to make sense of this occurrence.
