Those who sugarcoat history are doomed to repeat it, and children will die. Autism, wandering and drowning are the tragedy of the diagnosis. A diagnosis that has been whitewashed and the public brainwashed into thinking it is something much more benign than the reality. Not every person with autism, or autist, is severely affected or impaired. Not every person with autism, or autistic, is non-speaking and without a natural instinct to return home or a sense of self-preservation. Not every person with autism, or neurodivergent, is riddled with sleep, GI and seizure issues. Not every person with autism, or #actuallyautistic will face a life of rape, beatings, seclusion, restraint and exclusion from society.
Those who have DSM-V autism, diagnosed as a child likely will. God bless this, and every person with autism, who drowns. We are so sorry.
A massive search for a 4-year-old ended in tragedy Tuesday morning when the boy’s body was pulled from a pond behind a DeKalb County apartment building.
DeKalb police asked for the public’s help to locate Kyuss Williams after he wandered away from his family’s home in the East Ponce Village Apartments off Juliette Road around 6:30 p.m. Monday. They called off the search eight hours later when his body was recovered from the community’s retention pond.
