Temple Grandin

So, I saw the movie on television about Temple Grandin.  WOW!  My husband was actually the one watching it since I would rather play on the computer than watch tv.  I was shocked that he was viewing something besides wrestling and auto mechanics!
I have been trying to learn more about autism as someone on the outside looking in.  I have to tell you, this movie was awesome.  It really helped me to have more respect for the minds of the autistic.  There are little geniuses hidden in those heads just waiting to be discovered.
Temple truly had a battle ahead of her, but to the shame of the rest of us….she perservered instead of wallowing in her distress.  I don’t know that I would have or could have bounced back the way she did and kept my determination.  I envy her that inner strength.
Ok, I know it was a movie and that things aren’t really as easy as the movie made them seem.  But the overall impression was that it was all worthwhile, and that Temple was an amazing young lady.  Hats off to all of you who struggle with autism, whether it be because you are educating an autistic child or because you have it yourself.
Thank YOU for being patient with the rest of us.
