Autism Awareness Month

As you should hopefully know by now, April is Autism Awareness Month and in honor of that, tomorrow night, (April 1) prominent buildings across North America and the world including the Empire State Building and the CN Tower in Toronto will be lit up blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Friday, April 2.
I don't know of any buidings around here that are going to be lit up blue, but I know that myself and my kids will be wearing blue in honor of autism awareness on Friday.
The statistics of children with autism in the US has now risen to 1 in 91 and more importantly, 2 of them belong to me.
