We all do what we can, each and every one. No matter how grand or simple, it all has an impact, it all makes a difference. With your help, because of you, my path happened to lead me to the office of Senator John McCain one day. Coupled with the backing and experience of a team of autism mamas I'd team up with any day of the week and avoid the wrath and vengeance of every day of the week, John McCain promised to help. He even went as far as to request Senate hearings on our behalf. (That request can be seen here: (HERE))
Senator McCain also made numerous references to our community, the autism community, during his bid for the presidency. He promised on several occasions to make us and our loved ones a priority. Now, we all know he lost his bid to be commander in chief, but I just don't see any reason why he can't still keep that promise. Do you? We deserve to be a priority after all! Our loved ones should to be a priority.
That's where all of you come in, again. I've designed a petition, written a letter and will deliver both to Senator McCain at the close of the petition, which I'd like to be no later than Friday, Dec. 19, 2008. You don't have to agree with what it is I was moved to put into words; my experiences with John McCain were the driving force behind my fervor. The requests which will be made of Senator McCain, as a result of getting his attention by way of the petition, are meant to serve those we love and care for, nothing more.
Won't you please join me? It would mean so much to so many.
