"Autism is hard because you want to act one way, but you can't always do that. It's sad that sometimes people don't know that sometimes I can't stop myself and they get mad at me. If I could tell people one thing about autism it would be that I don't want to be this way. But I am, so don't be mad. Be understanding."
ABC News featured a story yesterday about Carly Fleischmann, a beautiful teenage girl with a story to tell. You can view it here or read the story here.
Yes, Carly has autism. But as you can see from this report, she is so much more than that.
Thank you Carly for creating more understanding. We heard you ... loud and clear.
