This meme stopped me in my tracks. It's so true. Adults with autism are being “disappeared,” even as the number of those over 18 grows. It’s a dirty secret. After 22, families are on their own. We need a version of IDEA - and FAPE for adults with special needs. Quality care. Meaningful days. Safe nights. Required, skilled care, not the “take it or leave it” system in place now. Students with autism have trained teachers and staff working with them. Adults with autism have few trained people around them to help them hold down a job, live independently, attend a day program or live in shared housing. It's bad and going to get worse. Because parents are growing older. And their parents are already quite old. This sandwich generation is the toughest to imagine. Yet here we are. No flag. No special color. No puzzle piece. No social outrage. We're too complicated. Too nuanced. TOO REAL.

The Wuhan Cover-Up pulls back the curtain on how the US government's increase in biosecurity spending after the 2001 terror attacks—facilitated by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)—set in motion a plan to transform the NIAID into a de facto Defense Department agency.
While Dr. Fauci zealously funded and pursued gain-of-function research, concern grew among some scientists and government officials about the potential for accidental or deliberate release of weaponized viruses from labs that might trigger worldwide pandemics. A moratorium was placed on this research, but true to form, Dr. Fauci found ways to continue unperturbed—outsourcing some of the most controversial experiments offshore to China and providing federal funding to Wuhan Institute of Virology's (WIV's) leading researchers for gain-of-function studies in partnership with the Chinese military and the Chinese Communist Party.

Based on over one hundred studies in the peer-reviewed literature that consider vaccinated versus unvaccinated populations. Each of these studies is analyzed and put in context of the difference in health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated infants, children, and adults. Given the massive push to vaccinate the entire global population, this book is timely and necessary for individuals to make informed choices for themselves and their families.
